This book successfully pulls together cutting-edge research from a variety of disciplines and types of inquiry and provides an important history and overview of the subject. It also draws attention to the role of religious belief in educational success. In this accountability-driven era, when people search for nearly any solution to increase the success of students, it is good to have the idea of parental involvement aired out for investigation. Educational researchers, school administrators and teachers, policymakers, and parents will benefit from reading this work and applying its principles to their own work with children.

Joanne Marshall, Associate Professor of Education, Iowa State University
