Do Parents Know They Matter?: Raising Achievement Through Parental Engagement
It is commonly agreed that engaging parents with their child's learning is positive and has wide-reaching benefits. This book articulates why parental engagement is of value and how it can be achieved with positive results. Beyond the why and how, the book explores what effective parental engagement is, making explicit the link between this and the impact on the learning of the child. To support this, practical, workable solutions and strategies are provided through case studies.
The book provides a powerful combination of academic theory supported with quantifiable and qualitative evidence from students, parents and schools, alongside answers provided by those who work with the challenges of this agenda on a daily basis. It will challenge, motivate and inspire understanding through the political agenda, and empower and enable schools to develop their practice.
