Partners in Education: Parental Involvement Ideas '81.
Reul, Gary P., Ed.
Educators from over 35 Washington State school districts and education service districts briefly describe their programs for involving parents in the schools. Compiled for Washington's six regional "Partners in Education" conferences, held in May 1981, the collection also presents Gallup Poll data on school volunteers and 115 ideas for parental involvement from the National School Volunteer Program. The educators' numerous ideas for parental participation, both in and out of school, cover such topics as classroom presentations or volunteering, tutoring, library or healthroom help, advisory committee membership, PTA involvement, fundraising, investigation of discipline problems, textbook selection, joint parent-student learning, donation of materials, parenting classes, and parent-principal "rap sessions."
