Some regions are scaling down, when we need to be scaling up.
The Feria Feria Para Aprender (The Learning Fair) does NOT replace existing educational events in the community but rather aims to support them. The Feria takes a different approach to creating systemic changes. It features these unique 7 elements:
- An engagement model with parents, businesses, non-profits and community around education
- A Spanish-language only format
- A one-way event navigation that puts the parents on an informed pathway
- A wrap-around event layout maps out the life cycle of a student from pre-K to college & career
- A display format that forces verbal interactions and is less reliant on brochures or materials
- Color coding that empowers low-literate parents
- Hands-on activity areas to promote college readiness and careers
The idea is that a whole produces more than a sum of its parts.
