Dozens of parents have graduated from a program aimed at getting parents more involved in their child's education.
The Hartford Parent University held its fourth annual graduation ceremony on Wednesday morning and staff members said the parent-led non-profit program trains parents on how to use school portals to check their child's work and to foster emotional growth in their children.
"Every parent wants their kids to graduate and to have a better future," Ada Roman, one of the graduates, said.
"She's always asking what's going on in school, she's more interested now that's she's been in this program," Yaritza Roman, a high school senior, said.
Sixty two parents graduated this year.
The free program is divided into 10 classes over one year, which are provided on weekends.
