In Fall 2015, Equality launched Adult Programming. Errol Olton, a dedicated staff member who has been with us since our inception in 2009, has been the driving force behind this initiative.
Research shows that the #1 predictor of a child's academic success is the education level of the mother. Schools usually focus on the children, not the parents. But at Equality we have made the commitment to do whatever we can, considering our limitations, to also support our parents.
Last year we launched Family Education courses to promote positive parenting skills. This year we launched Wellness courses, focusing on healthy eating habits and zumba. Check out posts on our Adult Programming Facebook Page!
Now we have launched our most exciting line of programming - Career Education courses! We are offering teacher certification preparation classes and High School Equivalency preparation classes.
All of these programs are FREE to adults in our school community (staff, parents, family members) as well as the Bronx community!
It takes a village to raise our scholars, and we are committed to supporting the entire village the best that we can.
