Family Involvement Partnership for Learning, Washington, DC.
These three brochures are short guides to show how parents, schools, and communities can support family involvement in education and help build a better educational environment. Noting that communities that support schools and families are better places to live, work, and learn, The "Join Together for Kids" brochure provides information on how to build a community partnership for learning, and on what the community can do to support schools and family involvement in education. The "Get Involved!" brochure shows how parents and families can help their children do better in school, by reading together, using TV wisely, establishing a daily family routine with scheduled homework time, talking to your children and teenagers, expressing high expectations for children by enrolling them in challenging courses, keeping in touch with the school, and using community resources. The "Team Up For Kids!" brochure points out that when schools and families team up to help children learn, everyone wins. This brochure also provides information on how schools can support family involvement in education. (AP)
