Home, School, and Community Relations
This practical, comprehensive text is an indispensable guide for home-school-community collaborations. HOME, SCHOOL, & COMMUNITY RELATIONS, 9th Edition, meets the needs of teachers and administrators who desire to create effective, culturally-competent partnerships with diverse families, and helps to prepare future teachers for their careers.
