This chapter discusses the practices that contributed to the accumulation of social capital for the CC9. More specifically, this chapter explores how these practices promoted the relationship between parents and the CC9. The CC9 refined the use of dialogue in empowering citizens, thereby closing the rift between individuals and the officials of the public sector. Solidarity and collective action between individual relationships were also greatly encouraged. Additionally, the CC9’s efforts to rethink expertise, private/public boundaries, leadership, and the conditions of respect are examined as conscious practice choices that promoted the affiliation or membership. These methods provide the framework for maintaining social capital within community-based organizations, in order to more efficiently pursue the goals of social change.

Keywords:   CC9, parents, public sector, social capital, public education, community-based organization, neoliberalist ideals
