Overview
Westview Press is pleased to offer a new, paperback Student Economy Edition of our best-selling title, "School, Family, and Community Partnerships."

"School, Family, and Community Partnerships: Preparing Educators and Improving Schools" addresses a fundamental question in education today: How will colleges and universities prepare future teachers, administrators, counselors, and other education professionals to conduct effective programs of family and community involvement that contribute to students success in school?
The work of Joyce L. Epstein has advanced theories, research, policies, and practices of family and community involvement in elementary, middle, and high schools, districts, and states nationwide. In this second edition, she shows that there are new and better ways to organize programs of family and community involvement as essential components of district leadership and school improvement.
The Second Edition Offers Educators and Researchers:
A framework for helping rising educators to develop comprehensive, goal-linked programs of school, family, and
community partnerships.
A clear discussion of the theory of overlapping spheres of influence, which asserts that schools, families, and communities
share responsibility for student success in school.
A historic overview and exploration of research on the nature and effects of parent involvement.
Methods for applying the theory, framework, and research on partnerships in college course assignments, class
discussions, projects and activities, and fi eld experiences.
Examples that show how research-based approaches improve policies on partnerships, district leadership, and
school programs of family and community involvement.
Definitive and engaging, "School, Family, and Community Partnerships" can be used as a main or supplementary text in courses on foundations of education methods of teaching, educational administration, family and community relations, contemporary issues in education, sociology of education, sociology of the family, school psychology, social work, education policy, and other courses that prepare professionals to work in schools and with families and students."
