Home and School as Partners: Helping Parents Help Their Children. A Resource Packet.
Haley, Paul; Berry, Karen
This resource packet presents some of the arguments for, and research about, parents playing an active role in the education of their children--not just by being supportive at home, but also by being involved in the school. The issues covered include: (1) the need for parent involvement; (2) goals of parent involvement; (3) types of parent involvement; (4) planning for parent involvement; (5) advantages of parent involvement; and (6) difficulties of parent involvement in culturally diverse schools. Brief descriptions of successful parent involvement programs in the Northeast are provided, as is a nationwide list of resource groups that support parent involvement in the schools. A 39-item bibliography is included. (PCB)
