  27. 27. PTA Comunitario Aurelio Montemayor, M.Ed. Director i3 PTA Comunitario, Intercultural Development Research Association Family Leadership at IDRA  Actionable Data -- There are many aspects of IDRA’s approach to family leadership but one key element is that the families are presented with data about their schools and are asked to take action on the data. If the students are doing poorly in math, the families investigate further into what is blocking the learning of math and what can help students learn math.  Collective Leadership -- Rather than identifying the super-mom, the approach looks toward forming community and supporting families to take on many roles together to improve schools.  Education Projects -- Projects are taken on that focus on school policies and practices that will have significant effect in improving schools.
