Editorial Reviews

Virginia Pilato
"Teitel's insights are incredibly on target with the issues faced by school and university staff who are now deeply engaged in PDS. They and others like them across the country will greatly benefit from the work of the author. "
From the Foreword by Marsha Levine

"This book will help PDS partners keep their focus on students' needs—the core of PDS work, as they take this journey together. It provides concrete suggestions for what PDS partners can do in developing, implementing, and assessing their partnerships, which are framed by the standards and grounded in core concepts. "
