How Fathers Increasingly Are Getting Involved in Schools

 


With Father's Day coming up, I thought I'd take a look at ways that fathers increasingly are getting involved in schools.

While women have traditionally been more active in schools, dad groups have been growing around the country, and the National Parent Teacher Association has been working on supporting that growth, along with other groups.

It's an issue that has come up at the White House. In 2012, the White House Fatherhood Report came out, part of President Barack Obama's initiative to engage more fathers, finding that one out of three children in the United States live in a house without their biological father.
