A group that’s worked for more than two decades to get parents more involved in their children’s education says a lot of work needs to be done across the country to beef up communication. Project Appleseed is made up of mostly volunteers who try to get parents, grandparents and guardians involved in the classroom. The group’s president, Kevin Walker, says there’s a huge communication gap between schools and parents, but states like Indiana have worked hard to improve it. Project Appleseed asks parents and guardians to sign a pledge to volunteer in their child’s school and to read to them for a minimum number of hours per week.
