In the United States, the unfortunate reality remains that approximately 40 to 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce (APA, 2015). Although healthy marriages are good for couples, children and families, an unhealthy relationship between couples can be devastating to the physical and mental health of all involved. Growing up in a two parent household has been found to be a protective factor for children, as married couples can shield children from mental, physical, educational and social problems.
With a representative from each ward, the CAG’s insight continues to be invaluable. By reaching out to their respective communities and drawing from their personal experiences, CAG members are able to share information about PCSB and public charter schools with their neighbors and friends.
Members of the CAG have lobbied council members and participated in community efforts, that have helped more families understand how public charter school’s impact all learners, from PK to adult.
