How To Involve Parents in a Multicultural School.
Davis, Bruce
This handbook, written by the principal of an urban elementary school that serves a diverse student population in a low socioeconomic area, offers strategies for principals who wish to increase parent involvement in their schools. Chapter 1 presents a brief history of parent involvement in American public schools over the past 60 years. The next three chapters offer suggestions for laying the foundation, conducting a parent school-satisfaction survey, and building trust. The fifth chapter describes strategies for managing communication--for working with the media, students, parents, and staff. Guidelines for linking community agencies to the school and for working with ethnic groups are provided in chapters 6 and 7. Volunteering truthful information to those served by the school is identified as the key to successful parent-school relations. Five figures are included. (LMI)
