Parent-School Partnership: An Analysis of Service Delivery and Technical Assistance Activities Provided Under P.L. 94-142. Resource Report No. 2.
Tucker, James A., Ed.
By providing background information, reviewing current practice, and identifying and analyzing related issues, the authors formulate and recommend solutions for strengthening the parent-school relationship, particularly as related to P.L. 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act). Section I provides background information on the law and descriptions of nine programs with parent education/involvement components which include the Parents Readiness Education Project--PREP (Detroit, Michigan); the Portage Project (Portage, Wisconsin); and the Center to Assist Parents and Professionals--CAP-P (Des Moines, Iowa). Literature on the parent-school relationship is reviewed in a second section; and two proposals are outlined, the first related to the necessity for revising and improving traditional approaches to parent-school relationships through awareness level public relations techniques, and the second focused on the training or skill building necessary to ensure the successful institutionalization of such a partnership. A final summary section lists four concerns and needs identified by parents and educators and stresses the role of State Regional Resource Centers as significant providers of information and training. A resource listing concludes the document. (SBH)
