A month or so ago I clicked on a link to the Mom Congress. I am a clicking fool lately. If I see it, I must click. Now I must admit that clicking around has led me to opps I would not have known about. Anyway, I clicked on the Mom Congress link. I was intrigued. I intended to apply, but didn’t. I even added the Mom Congress widget to my blog. I am excited for the Mom Congress delegates from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
I won’t be at the Mom Congress at Georgetown University, but I will be doing the next best thing…watching via Webcast. The webcast will be broadcast on Monday, May 3 from 10:30 – 11:45 a.m. My state is represented by Ms. C. Jones of Baltimore!
U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will host a town hall meeting with the parent education advocates on the role of family engagement in education reform. U.S. Dept of Education will offer an in-depth look at how parental involvement will be encouraged as part of America’s education goals during the live webcast.

Duncan will be joined on stage by 51 moms, representing each state and Washington, D.C., who were chosen by Parenting*magazine to attend its Mom Congress on Education and Learning conference for their accomplishments in improving their local schools. Each of the 51 Mom Congress delegates received an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., from Parenting to attend the event May 2nd through May 4th, and will work towards creating Parenting*’s “Lesson Plan for Change,” a guide to help empower parents nationwide to get more involved in their children’s education.
