Not Just Numbers: Creating a Partnership Climate to Improve Math Proficiency in Schools
Sheldon, Steven B.; Epstein, Joyce L.; Galindo, Claudia L.
Leadership and Policy in Schools, v9 n1 p27-48 2010
Although we know that family involvement is associated with stronger math performance, little is known about what educators are doing to effectively involve families and community members, and whether this measurably improves math achievement at their schools. This study used data from 39 schools to assess the effects of family and community involvement activities on school levels of math achievement. The study found that better implementation of math-related practices of family and community involvement predicted stronger support from parents for schools' partnership programs, which, in turn, helped to estimate the percentage of students scoring as proficient on math achievement tests.
