Readable, compelling overview of family involvement studies Jan. 30 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book as a great tool for every child and education advocate! The style makes it easy to access key information on how to make school a success for all our children. Great gift for every school board trustee, Superintendent, Administrator or other policy maker!
Henderson and Berla make the studies accessible to all, and along the way provide solid evidence that...
- quality parent/family involvement is needed for kids to succeed;
- the highest gains come from more substantial involvement; and
- that administrators' and officials' attitudes and policies make a big difference in how well these programs work.

The introduction provides an easy-access overview. Pull quotes in the study section highlight key findings. Full reference info is given for each study so the reader can find the original study if desired. All in all, a great work!
