When parents become involved in the education of their child research shows positive results for parents and children. However, not all parents know how to be meaningfully involved, and those that are involved may not understand all that is happening in their child's education.
At the Meskwaki Settlement School being meaningfully involved is an important issue to parents. There is a past history of fear of education due to forced removal to boarding schools far from families and cultural ties. There is a need for parents to connect not only with their child in the school but also with the school in a culturally relevant way. The ultimate purpose of this project was to create a parent volunteer program in order to provide opportunities for the Meskwaki community to become more involved in the Meskwaki Settlement School.
