‘Many “Views” of Parent Involvement’

Popular education blogger Angela Maiers wrote a post earlier this year titled Many “Views” Of Parent Involvement. It includes many thoughtful comments worth considering, as well as several links to additional resources.

One of the links I thought was particularly interesting was to an article that Angela wrote for Education Week’s “Leader Talk” on the same topic. I was struck by two “Wordles” (an illustration showing the most common words used) — one by how teachers described parent/teacher interaction and the other how parents at the same schools would describe it. Talk about living in two different worlds! Check it out.

  1. Larry,
    I am so excited to get your book. I just ordered it today!

    With all the talk about technology, new literacies, new world…it is easy to let the most powerful force we have – our families– slip through the conversations on educational reform.

    Thank you for this work, and for bringing these vital conversations to the forefront of our minds!
