Utah Program Works To Engage Fathers

The AP (3/15, Van Valkenburg) profiles the DOGS, or "Dads of Great Students," program at Horace Mann Elementary School in Ogden, Utah, in which volunteers "read with children, help them with math, assist in the gym and lunchroom, and sometimes just walk the halls of the 460-student school. ... 'It started in Arkansas, after a school shooting,' said Lisa Stephens, the PTA representative who brought the Watch D.O.G.S. program to the school. ... More than 1,150 schools in 36 states participate, and more than 70,000 dads volunteer."
