Parents are students at Brooklyn education seminars

Classes aren’t just for kids in New York City. The Brooklyn Borough President’s Office is teaming up with the DOE to offer a new “Brooklyn Parent Academy” for two weeks this month, with seminars focusing on advocating for children with special needs, helping children with math and reading, dealing with bullying and gang violence, and the DOE’s new middle school initiatives. Register by tomorrow for the workshops, which begin Oct. 16.
