    Workshop for Parents

    Our boys are under-achieving in school, their parents are often frustrated, and schools need to have higher expectations and greater appreciation for the learning style, culture and unique needs of our African-American boys.
    This workshop gives parents a greater understanding of the causes of school failure and more importantly TOOLS to ensure school success. Simple, yet highly effective lifestyle strategies, based upon timeless principles, are carefully explained. Our presenter has observed, first-hand, how these strategies move students from "F" to "A". Listen to these secrets for academic improvement. Parents will learn simple strategies they can implement at home that turn school failure into school success.
