Portland schools will try to bridge gaps with immigrant parents
from Portland Press Herald
Portland parent Micky Bondo was surprised when she went to parent-teacher conferences and didn't see her friends and neighbors from the immigrant community. "I didn't see the diversity of the parents. I thought: What's going on? Am I the only one?" said Bondo, a native of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who moved here from Atlanta in 2009. "So I went to different parents in my own community and asked them, 'Why didn't I see you at the parent-teacher conference at your child's school?'"
