Who we are
One veteran teacher. One ed reform policy wonk and lawyer. Both parents. Ed researchers. Eyewitnesses who identified the most neglected variable for student success.
What we do
We teach parent-child pairs. We use fun with art & music to help children think, speak, read, & write…better. We write curriculum & design programs. We champion family learning.
Why we do it
We believe the equation for student success is missing strategic parent-child learning. Our strategy uses art & music to build language and literacy skills & families. It fills a void between overburdened schools & undervalued parents. We believe both want the best for each student. But, schools’ scarce resources and parents’ lack of understanding & know-how limit them both. We believe that Story Square’s committed focus on family learning founded on the academic cornerstone – literacy – will yield student success.
