State Laws on Family Engagement in Education is the title of a study just released by the PTA.
Here’s how they describe it:
The purpose of this reference guide is two-fold:
It provides families and advocates with information on family engagement provisions within state education laws so that they can better advocate for their children’s education on the school and district levels.
It guides policymakers’ and advocates’ development of their legislative reform initiatives as well as their efforts to monitor the implementation of laws already in place.
The reference guide provides key facts, background, analysis, noteworthy statutes, and policy recommendations for crafting successful family engagement legislation at the state level. Finally, the reference guide contains a survey of laws including legal citations pertaining to family engagement in education in all fifty states and the District of Columbia.
I haven’t gotten a chance to look at it yet, so can say how useful it might. I’ll probably check it out further over the holidays. It’s certainly worth a look.
