About the book:
Anyone involved in the workings of a school in a community setting will find the chapters in this book to be useful in strengthening the existing relationships among schools, families, and community members and building powerful new ones. The authors cover a variety of important topics related to forging networks that support positive student development and school success.
Co-editors Young and Michael have invited experienced educators to share their success stories in case studies that illustrate school-family-community partnerships that work together to solve the challenges of contemporary education in this country. Their creative approaches represent best practice in thinking about how to maximize scarce resources, how to engage families in our increasingly diverse society, how to leverage the strengths of community agencies and businesses, and how to involve students in leadership initiatives to better their schools.
