de la Piedra, Maria Teresa; Munter, Judith Hope; Giron, Hector
School Community Journal, v16 n1 p57-80 Spr-Sum 2006
This article provides an overview of the conceptual framework and preliminary findings from a compendium of studies on school-university-community partnerships in Latino communities, with a focus on lessons learned on the U.S./Mexico border. The voices of professors, school administrators, and students with whom the co-authors have worked over a period of seven years in collaborative research are woven throughout the narrative. In this article, participants from the University of Texas at El Paso, together with K-12 school partners and parents, as well as supporting evidence from participants in diverse communities in Oklahoma, Florida, and Georgia, describe the impacts of the processes of collaborative planning, implementation, and evaluation of family/community-based projects on schools, families, and the education of future teachers.
