Dear Parents: In the United States...It's Our School Too.
Nicolau, Siobhan; And Others
This guidebook for Hispanic parents offers suggestions for supporting their children as they develop socially and academically. It covers various parental responsibilities such as their children's health, talking with their children, reading and listening to their children, and using the community and home as learning environments. It also suggests the different ways that parents can form partnerships with the schools, including making sure homework is finished, seeing that their children regularly visit the library, meeting with teachers and counselors regularly, and participating in the school's volunteer activities.
