Anne Henderson has been researching parent involvement/engagement strategies for many years, and we cite several of her research findings in our book. She is also the co-author of Beyond the Bake Sale: The Essential Guide to Family-School Partnerships. I’ll be interviewing her for this blog in the coming months.
She provided testimony to the United States Senate in 2007 on Effective Strategies for Engaging Parents and Communities in Schools.
It’s definitely worth a read.
