Parents as Partners in Education is the most comprehensive book on the market covering the history of family/school collaboration, current issues and population trends affecting American schools and communities, diverse family structures, and techniques for establishing connections with parents and encouraging involvement with their child’s learning (PreK- Grade 4). Among other themes, the book emphasizes the importance of funds of knowledge for children’s development and for effective partnerships with families (the knowledge that children acquire from their families). This edition also adds the concept of funds of identity as a catalyst for educators to understand their own identity. Throughout the book the authors make connections to these concepts not only to help educators understand child development, but also to show how children develop within the context of their families. This edition also continues to highlight important parent involvement programs and how such programs are often successful because of an asset-based view of families, particularly of those that are culturally and linguistically diverse, as well as those with children with special needs. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video and assessments.

I had to purchase this book for a child development class that focuses on home, school, and community relations. I found this book extremely dry and boring. I'm taking two other child development courses and I have no difficulties in reading those books. I wouldn't purchase this book unless you absolutely have to. Even the professor of this class uses a powerpoint presentation from a different textbook to give us notes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
