A New Wave of Evidence: The Impact of School, Family, and Community Connections on Student Achievement
Anne T. Henderson and Karen L. Mapp
In producing this synthesis, the authors examined more than 50 research studies. A New Wave of Evidence presents evidence showing that schools must connect parent activities to student learning goals while being aware and respectful of differences among families. Specifically, schools need to build trust and collaborative relationships among teachers, families, and community leaders to address families' needs as well as their differences and to adhere to a philosophy of shared power and responsibility.
