Published by RowmanLittlefield
The research on parent involvement in education indicates that, in most cases, when parents play an active role in their children's education, academic achievement improves. As a result, schools are now mandated to incorporate parent involvement in the educational process. Educators are faced with the challenge of creating ways to engage parents in their children's education. Promising Partnerships: Ways to Involve Parents in Their Children's Education is a resource that can be used to unite educators and parents in the common goal of educating today's children. By including relevant topics such as academics, self-esteem, test-taking, mentoring, bullying, independence, decision-making, and cultural diversity, this book confronts educators, parents, and students. Lisa J. Harpin not only acknowledges the importance of these issues but also provides solutions for addressing the challenges that accompany them by establishing partnerships among stakeholders that ultimately lead to student success.
