This week's inaugural Center for Michigan Twitter chat on education, while it didn't exactly melt the Internet into a puddle, was a success, enough so that we're planning another one. Mark your calendars for March 28, noon to 1 p.m., hashtag #edchatmi.
We're sourcing the crowd to air common-sense solutions for boosting parental involvement in their children's education. Our co-participants in this effort, the Detroit Parent Network and Education Trust Midwest, have real-world experience in these areas. If you're looking for a better idea or have one to offer, please stop by on your lunch hour later this month. Social networking is a valuable resource, but it depends on participation.
