Preparing Educational Leaders to Build Transformative Communities of Involvement: The Importance of Trust
Young, Michelle D.; Carpenter, Bradley
Journal of School Public Relations, v29 n2 p276-311 Spr 2008
This article is drawn from a qualitative study of the role that school building leaders play in building parent and community involvement in their schools. The article focuses on four of the principals involved in the study who--with their students, staff, parents, and community members--developed inclusive, meaningful, and transformative communities of involvement. The article delineates the contours of transformative communities of involvement within a discussion of five models of involvement. Subsequently, the beliefs that appeared to support the leaders work to develop and sustain such communities are examined, along with a rich discussion of the role that trust played in their efforts and success.
