School psychologists are in a great place to develop partnerships between the people at home and the people at school to benefit children's learning. The strategies described in this book were implemented in our school last year, and we can see the difference. When parents request to continue as partners, when teachers volunteer to participate and recruit other teachers to become involved--that's when we know the processes and systems are working! This book is an important tool for school psychologists, teachers, and administrators. --DeAnn Currin, PhD, Principal, Elliott Elementary School, Lincoln, NE
The major challenge of 21st-century schools is to involve families effectively in students' education. This is the best book I have read on school-family partnerships to enhance children's academic, social, and emotional growth. With great scholarship and wisdom, these scientist-practitioners use theory and current research to inform educators about systematic actions and innovative strategies to develop family-school connections for learners. If more educators, policymakers, community leaders, and parents were to implement the authors' scientifically based principles and practices, countless more children would experience school success each year. A very important book. --Roger P. Weissberg, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Illinois at Chicago; Executive Director, Collaborative to Advance Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL)
