“You can read any number of text books on schools and family involvement, but this textbook stands out in that the ideas presented are practical, the examples are real, and future teachers will be able to actually incorporate many of the suggestions into their own dealings with parents, families, and schools.”

Kathleen M. Sheridan
National-Louis University

“Family involvement is one of the best predictors of academic success for students; therefore it is vital that future educators are well-informed about supportive family involvement practices. Home, School, and Community Collaboration: Culturally Responsive Family Involvement provides students with this important information.”

Amy J. Malkus
East Tennessee State University

An up to date text that is informative and easy to read for undergraduates. Lots of clear practical examples.

This text provided the elements that I wish to include in this course. I used 2 text books last year and this one seemed to provide the combined focus that is targeted in my class.

Great book aligned with standards and easy to read and understand

This book is as 'fresh' as it is timely. Home, school community partnerships are so necessary in these 'critical times'. I speak with special reference to the damaged first, second and third 'rings of security' - home, community and school, respectiviely. One only need to look at the newspaper headlines to see how the damages are done. The suggestions and activities noted for family involment in schools are sound and realistic. I highly recommend this book to all those who want to make a positive difference to children's educational success.

Although this is an American text it is a supplemental read for English students studying community collaboration
