Bicultural Parent Engagement: Advocacy and Empowerment
Olivos, Edward M., Ed.; Jimenez-Castellanos, Oscar, Ed.; Ochoa, Alberto M., Ed.
Teachers College Press
This book examines how commonly applied approaches to parent involvement in schools do not easily transfer to bilingual and bicultural families. The authors--respected scholars in the field of educational equity--challenge commonly accepted boundaries of bicultural parent involvement. They provide real-life examples, practical strategies, discussion questions, and suggestions for ensuring that schools welcome and value bicultural families. This timely resource is a hopeful vision of what authentic and democratic parent engagement can become, and how parents can be transformative change agents for their children and their schools.
Descriptors: Parent Participation, Biculturalism, Bilingualism, Family School Relationship, Advocacy, Empowerment
