Partnership for Family Involvement in Education (ED), Washington, DC.
Based on the view that a strong and vigorous economy depends upon an educated, skilled, and competent citizenry, this pamphlet describes how businesses can support family involvement in education and thereby increase students' chances for school success. The pamphlet provides a rationale for joining the Partnership for Family Involvement in Education and includes an enrollment form. In addition, the pamphlet delineates materials available from the U.S. Department of Education providing guidelines on getting families involved in education. Finally, the pamphlet describes four ways employers can support family involvement in education: (1) create and promote family-friendly policies; (2) partner with local schools; (3) provide information on family involvement in education; and (4) help students obtain work-related skills.
