New Study Reveals What Keeps Parents Up at Night

Hello PTA Leaders,

Today, Learning Heroes released findings from a national poll on public school parents’ perspectives on their children’s academic, emotional and physical well-being. The study was conducted by Hart Research and commissioned by Learning Heroes, in collaboration with Univision; and in partnership with National PTA, National Urban League, NCLR and UNCF. The findings show parents’ high expectations and deep engagement in their children’s development, and at the same time, identify a disconnect between views on students’ performance in school and national data. The study also unearthed areas where parents most need support.

Please find attached and below a press release on the poll and a new “Readiness Roadmap” that was launched today in response to the study findings to empower parents with the tools they need to support their children’s success. We encourage you to review the research and incorporate the findings into your work. We also encourage you to share the Readiness Roadmap with PTAs and families in your states.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or if we can provide any assistance.

Best regards,

Heidi May Wilson
