Important Questions for Engaging Every Family is a good post from Steven M. Constantino at Parent Involvement matters.
Here’s an excerpt:
Engaging every family is a commitment from schools and communities that has far-reaching effects on the learning outcomes of all children. The courage and will to make dramatic change means that we have to examine the policies that govern our schools and districts but do so through a different lens. We must garner a different perspective with regard to our opinions, attitudes and beliefs about how we truly treat and engage families. It doesn’t stop at policies, but includes practices, processes and procedures as well. We must send a clear message that we wish every family to be engaged.
