Parents as Partners in Education, Eighth Edition, is uniquely the most comprehensive book on the market covering the history of parenting and parent/school collaboration, current issues and population trends affecting American schools and communities, diverse family structures, and techniques for establishing a connection with parents and encouraging involvement with their child’s learning.
Based on the notion of funds of knowledge, the knowledge that children acquire from their families, this best-selling textbook helps the reader differentiate between culture and diversity as they relate to culturally and linguistically diverse families. Rather than following a tourist approach to culture, this new edition focuses on culturally relevant pedagogy to work with children and their families, particularly those who are English language learners and immigrant children. A special focus on culturally and linguistically diverse children with special needs is a remarkable aspect of the book.
