Agnes S. Bain is a lifelong resident of Lawrence, Massachusetts, and began work with Luz Santana and Dan Rothstein when she was a parent of children in the Lawrence public schools system.
Bain is one of the founders (and a past president and current board member) of the Right Question Institute. She has helped develop the institute's original concept of microdemocracy and has contributed to innovative teaching materials and resources for promoting greater citizen participation on all levels of a democratic society. Her kitchen table has a special place in Right Question Institute history as the location where some of its best ideas and curricula were first developed.
Bain has a PhD from Boston University and is a professor of government at Suffolk University where she has taught courses on community advocacy and topics in democracy.
By learning how to ask the "right questions," educators can build effective partnerships with parents who have not been actively involved in their children's schooling.
