Parents Are a School's Best Friend.
Cavarretta, June
Educational Leadership, v55 n8 p12-15 May 1998
An active parent describes how over 400 parent volunteers in the Carpentersville (Illinois) school district were trained to participate in their children's education through shared decision making. Each school practices a governance model focusing on trust building, collaboration, shared vision, and continuous improvement. Forging authentic family/school relationships is a challenging, time-consuming process, but is worth the effort. (MLH)
