Driven by the ever-increasing role parents play in implementing positive change in our nation’s schools, Parenting magazine launched a prosocial initiative to connect moms advocating for education reform in March 2009: Mom Congress™ on Education and Learning.  The Mom Congress initiative will be covered regularly in Parenting School Years, the new edition of Parenting magazine that provides moms of school-age kids with the information they need to give their children the best foundation for a solid education.

Throughout the year, Parenting School Years will highlight moms who have effected change in their schools, and invite readers to share their questions and success stories with other parents and education leaders on   Georgetown University’s School of Continuing Studies serves as educational provider for the Mom Congress initiative, and will work with Parenting to develop the curriculum that supports the program.

Updated 8/27/09: Mom Congress has launched their first big initiative – a letter writing campaign to encourage Congress to make fixing No Child Left Behind a priority. You can sign the petition here.
