Navigating the K-12 education space across the United States of America can often be challenging and difficult to navigate. The systems and services in each state, county and/or city will vary. At times, this can be a matrix and if information is shared, it is dense, complex, and disconnected.
However, our greatest resource is our community! We can serve as “funds of knowledge” for one another. “Funds of knowledge” is a concept based on the premise that people are competent and have knowledge, and their life experiences provide knowledge and insight.
As a result, the Minot AFB School Liaison Office is forming an “Education Working Group” (EWG) to provide families with tangible support and resources while navigating education in North Dakota. The focus of the group is to serve as a venue for questions to be answered with ample resources provided. In addition, this group will serve as advocacy group to affect change at the local, state, and national levels.
If you are interested in joining the EWG, please send an email to MAFB.email@example.com or follow the Minot AFB School Liaison Page on Facebook. We look forward to seeing you soon!
