The Partnership for Family Involvement in Education: Who We Are and What We Do.
The U.S. Department of Education's Partnership for Family Involvement in Education encourages individuals, partner organizations, and alliances, whether they are members of the Partnership or not, to develop and implement effective family involvement practices in education. The goals of the Partnership are to increase opportunities for families to become more involved in their children's education both at home and at school and to promote children's learning and achievement. This document describes the Partnership and details initiatives of partners across the country to achieve Partnership goals. Following an introduction outlining the benefits of joining the Partnership, the bulk of the document provides brief descriptions of programs, organized by goals, such as providing parents the resources, training, and information they need to help children learn. Programs include cooperative ventures between schools and churches, between businesses to provide family support, between local businesses and schools, and between community colleges and school districts. The remainder of the document includes a Partnership registration form, and a list of publications from the U.S. Department of Education, organized by topic. (HTH)
