Libraries: Creating a Culture of Learning
"When a student struggles in school, it’s often assumed that the teachers, school system and/or student are responsible. However, through our research at CEHD we’ve discovered that family and community are primary factors in ensuring success and creating a culture of learning."
"The most effective way to encourage students to succeed in school is to build a strong foundation and culture of learning outside of the school, which starts by instilling a love of learning within parents."
"We engage libraries, employment centers, community colleges, businesses, and other institutions, to form a local network of learning between families and communities."
