About this title


A basic tenet of Families, Schools, & Communities: Building Partnerships for Educating Children, fourth edition, is that schools will always be a primary venue for educating the young child, and educators must be in the forefront of any endeavor to bring about change.  However, the authors stress that to accomplish the tasks at hand, all school districts must develop vibrant partnerships--uniting parents and community members with teachers in educating tomorrow's citizens.  Schools are where the action will bloom, but respectful collaboration is the key to success.

From the Back Cover:

This fourth edition discusses the benefits and strategies for developing a strong collaboration among the family, school, and community to support children in today’s culturally diverse society.
