A Family Affair: Education. Families and the Helping Professions in Partnership.
Rich, Dorothy; Jones, Cynthia
Emphasizing the importance of the family in education, this book presents a sampling of strategies for fostering a strong parent-teacher-community partnership. The first chapter discusses the need for parent and community involvement; lists strategies to help administrators, teachers, and parent and community leaders in working with one another; briefly describes the Home Educational Learning Program; and outlines a yearly plan for parent involvement. Chapter 2 discusses the importance of the family in a child's education and offers ideas and suggestions for parents. Included are goals for family involvement, a list of ten "success builders," and teaching tips and home learning systems for parents. Suggestions are aimed primarily at parents with children aged 2 to 10. Chapter 3 discusses research studies from 1964 to 1975 that investigated the role of the family in promoting children's learning, and provides summaries of major preschool and in-school programs which emphasize parent involvement.
