Contact Eileen for an interview today on cutting edge issues including:


  • How do we have authentic dialogues in schools and communities about race, culture and class that bring the country together?
  • How do we create strong, respectful schools where every student can thrive?
  • What are the pervasive myth-perceptions and stereotypes that keep us bound in the context of us vs. “the other”?
  • How does diversity benefit every student of every background?
  • Why are many parents not engaged in their child’s school, and how do we change that?

 “In her book, Kugler identifies seven myths that keep otherwise smart parents away from such schools. I have only enough space to hint at the detailed way she dismantles each misimpression.”
-Jay Mathews, Washington Post

“What a great job you did discussing parent involvement in schools for ‘Parents Perspective.’ Listeners all over will benefit from your insights and suggestions.”
