Parents who become leaders are better able to support their
children's learning - both through their active presence at the
school and through the skills and contacts they gain in their
leadership activities. Taking a leadership role and achieving
success help parents develop a greater sense of their own power to

kind of strong, trusting relationships that lead to positive,
sustainable change. In the end, students benefit.
