Parents, caregivers, and others who volunteer in schools are a vital part of student success. But if you’re a new school parent, it can be intimidating to get involved. Quentoria Jones is a mom of four in Greenville County Schools who overcame her nervousness and has become a core member of the school community. She talks with Catherine Schumacher, President and CEO of Public Education Partners, about why it’s important for caregivers to get involved, how schools and current volunteers can make it easier, and how it helps for parents and teachers to be on the same team for the good of all students.
