Author: Nance M. Millar, PhD

This book has been written to deepen in parents, principals and teachers an appreciation of the role of parents as the 'primary educators' of their children. It focuses on the relationship between them and the vital need for recognition of their complementary roles as 'significant others' in the socialization and education of children.

Engagement of families in a partnership with teachers is exercised through collaboration and consultation, while affirming parental responsibilities. When families and schools unite in their aims and expectations, children enjoy coming to school and learning in a safe environment.

Technological innovations offer challenging opportunities for teaching personnel to extend the learning processes to include the home.

Written as a practical manual, the book outlines principles and proven models of parental engagement in schools, and offers questions for individual and group reflection. It provides a guide for cultural transformation to generate socially inclusive, learning school communities in both primary and secondary education.

While the research for the basis of this model of transformation occurred in the Catholic school system, its principles for implementation may be adapted and applied to any school community.
