Ideally, it would be structured to include "experienced educators" on the
Board of Directors, and most certainly include a strong representation from
current teachers who are "in the trenches" to help set policies and
procedures that would meet educational needs. And, yes, it is a community
defined problem--each situation a bit different. But I strongly feel,
unless family and community work together, with strong leadership, there
isn't much hope.
