Product Details

When schools work together with families to support learning, children tend to success not just in school, but also throughout life. In fact, the most accurate predictor of a student's achievement in school is not income or social status, but the extent to which that student's family is able to (Henderson, 1997):

  • Create a home environment that encourages learning;
  • Express high (but not unrealistic) expectations for their children's achievement and future careers; and,
  • Become involved in their children's education at school and in the community.
