Collaboration with Latino Families: A Critical Perspective of Home-School Interactions
Olivos, Edward M.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v45 n2 p109-115 2009
This article focuses on how education personnel can foster a climate and infrastructure for working collaboratively with Latino families. The author argues that collaboration is facilitated when educators understand how they, as school agents, accept a Latino community's culture, knowledge, and power within the school context and how educators align their values and beliefs, as well as school policies and practices, with those of the community. Included is a review of relevant literature as well as suggestions for Latino family collaboration that can be used to guide educators (special and general) in identifying mind-sets and practices that either permit or preclude authentic collaboration. (Contains 2 tables.)
