Parent Training and Information Centers (PTIs) and Community Parent Resource Centers (CPRCs) in each state provide training and information to parents of infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities and to professionals who work with children. This assistance helps parents to participate more effectively with professionals in meeting the educational needs of children and youth with disabilities. The Parent Centers work to improve educational outcomes for children and youth with all disabilities (emotional, learning, mental, and physical).
Parent Information Resource Centers (PIRC)

Parent Information Resource Centers (PIRCs) seek to increase parents' knowledge and confidence in child-rearing activities, strengthen partnerships between parents and professionals in meeting the development and educational needs of pre-school (beginning at birth) and school-aged children, and build and strengthen partnerships between parents and schools.

This resource page is sponsored by Aviation Explorer Post 182 and Hiller Aviation Museum . Comments, ideas, and input are always welcome. If you would like to suggest an aviation program or activity of interest to children or young adults in the San Francisco Bay Area, or know of any programs generally available to youngsters nationwide, please contact us at Age recommendations are listed for parental guidance only.

    • HQT in Need of Improvement?
      According to a recent report by the Education Trust, In Need of Improvement: Ten Ways the U.S. Department of Education Has Failed To Live Up to Its Teacher Quality Commitments, there is too little focus on the teacher quality provisions in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act and widespread confusion about what those provisions mean. As a result, the report finds, NCLB is seen by many as an attempt to arbitrarily punish experienced teachers. (600k PDF file) How to Evaluate Your Professional Development Program
      What the Public Considers a "Highly Qualified Teacher"

      This article in Educational Leadership (September 2002) summarizes the findings of two recent reports that offer very different perspectives. Meeting the Highly Qualified Teachers Challenge: The Secretary's Annual Report on Teacher Quality was issued by the U.S. Department of Education in June 2002. Two days later, the Educational Testing Service announced the release of A National Priority: Americans Speak on Teacher Quality, which examined the results of its national survey of the U.S. public's attitudes about the quality of the teaching force. Universal Proficiency: The New Education Agenda
      For the last half-century, education policies and practices were focused on providing universal access to public education. The passage of No Child Left Behind marks a major turning point, shifting the policy focus from universal access to universal proficiency. In this roundtable interview (School Administrator, September 2003), five prominent school reform experts consider the implications of this sea change for the work of education leaders.

    Part 2: The Model In Depth

    Part 3: Implementing the Model
    Part 5: References
    In this final report, we outline a model of parent education that provides common ground for extension professionals throughout the Cooperative Extension System. The National Extension Parent Education Model (NEPEM) is a dynamic approach to parent education constructed through consensus. We hope you find inspiration and direction for your parent education programming within the pages of this document. This report is intended primarily for professionals or committed volunteers who deliver parent education programs and for decision makers and advocates. It is not meant to be given directly to parents. NEPEM is not a parent education program. It is a compilation of priority parent practices and supporting material to be used as a basis for parent education efforts. It also can be used to communicate our priorities to those outside of extension who might be unfamiliar with our goals and programs. Resources listed in the Curriculum Guide section are examples of more specific parent education programs that are consistent with the model. Please contact the authors of these resources if you want to learn more about them.
