The Nature of Parent and Community Engagement in Schools that Are Learning Communities
Everson, Susan Toft
Journal of School Public Relations, v25 n1 p70-91 Win 2004
In many reports, scholars describe parent involvement in schools by focusing on the influence parents have on their children's learning or on the educators' perspective of parent involvement (e.g., Norton, 2003). This article looks at the issue through a different lens. It focuses on the nature of parents and community engagement in schools that exhibit the characteristics of effective learning communities where students perform well.
