MEDIA REVIEWS
This excellent book not only offers a convincing argument that educators must engage community members in the educational decisions that will affect them and their children, but it also provides the skills that educators and stakeholders must learn to be meaningfully engaged with one another. Real skills, such as story telling, listening, problem solving, conflict management, and facilitation. To cap it off, the book also shows how to apply those skills to real-world situations, such as community forums, focus groups, and action research. It should become an indispensable resource to enlightened educational leaders everywhere. -- Anne T. Henderson, author of the best-selling book, "Beyond the Bake Sale", a founder of the National Association for Family, School and Community Engagement and senior consultant, community organizing and engagement, Annenberg Institute for School Reform
All school board members and educators should read The Politics of Authentic Engagement. This practical book and its workbook provide strategies on how to engage underserved populations, busy, overwhelmed families and community members who have too much to do and are angry and confused in the present environment of polarization and self-righteousness. As school board members we must engage our stakeholders in civil community dialogue that is focused on solving problems that affect them and their children so they will share in the responsibility for the success of all students. Politics of Authentic Engagement shows us how. -- Lesley Dahlkemper, past board president and current board member Jefferson County Board of Education, Colorado (JEFFCO)
No one in the country has more experience than Kathy Leslie in listening closely to multiple school stakeholders, and then using that input to build understanding and broaden ownership of any recommended changes. These books provide decades of wisdom and practical advice. -- Adam Kernan-Schloss, president and CEO, KSA-Plus Communications, Arlington, Virginia
If you aspire to effectively engage each family in meaningful work that supports student success, and to develop parent leaders among all your stakeholders including families of color read The Politics of Authentic Engagement. Written by a leader in advanced engagement work Kathy Leslie arms the reader with perspectives, tools, templates and strategies to build a culture of stakeholder engagement and responsibility for the successful performance of all students. -- Joe Krumm APR, past president National School Public Relations Association and public relations director North Clackamas School District, Milwaukie Oregon
