Inga Cotton (@SACharterMoms on Twitter) has brought new life to the idea of parent advocacy by using practical information about local schools as a way of influencing the educational choices families make. Knowing from her own experience that the needs of children can vary widely from home to home, Inga has made it her mission to help others find the best possible learning conditions – whether that is public, private, or home schooling.
Starting in 2012, Inga launched a “Mom Blog” to explain her journey and help others. Today that blog has grown in to a successful nonprofit – San Antonio Charter Moms – that has a robust website and an amazing app for finding schools.
She joined the Education Is Power Broadcast to discuss her work and how we can continue to make sure parents are in power.
