Parent, Student and Teacher Collaboration
The Power of Three


October 1998 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`There cannot be another more attractive and refreshingly appealing title of the book that beautifully symbolizes the tremendous power inherent in the collaboration of school, family and child' - Sushila Singhal, Journal of Educational Planning and Administration

In this accessible book, the author demonstrates that school improvement must start with a reconsideration of school effects upon the home, and home effects upon the school. The students' school experience must acknowledge the daily influence of the family in the classroom. To ignore this `hidden link' is to remain ignorant about students' lives and motivations, and makes it very difficult for educators to improve schools and schooling. Based on extensive research, Parent, Student and Teacher Collaboration provides invaluable guidance and insight.
