5.0 out of 5 stars Evidence-based and very useful
I found this to be an extremely useful and well-written resource. Of use to leaders in schools, governors and parents' groups who are working with school to establish effective parental engagement and participation. Given the calibre of the authors, it is not surprising that effective-based good practice takes centre stage. It gave me lots of helpful insights and...

2.0 out of 5 stars Hear We Go Again
This book tries hard and is worth a look even if only to back up the importance of parents. That is the good news. Let us take three researchers, a whole bunch of research and some schools where the staff are really trying hard to make busted (mainly YEAR) systems work in the way all schools do. Let us then take on board a whole raft of ideas and present them as drivers,...

This review is from: Do Parents Know They Matter?: Raising achievement through parental engagement (Paperback)
I found this to be an extremely useful and well-written resource. Of use to leaders in schools, governors and parents' groups who are working with school to establish effective parental engagement and participation. Given the calibre of the authors, it is not surprising that effective-based good practice takes centre stage. It gave me lots of helpful insights and brought a great deal of material into one source. I would recommend this most strongly to anyone who, like me, is trying to help a school to improve the quality of its work with parents

2.0 out of 5 stars Hear We Go Again, 31 Aug 2011
This review is from: Do Parents Know They Matter?: Raising achievement through parental engagement (Paperback)
This book tries hard and is worth a look even if only to back up the importance of parents. That is the good news. Let us take three researchers, a whole bunch of research and some schools where the staff are really trying hard to make busted (mainly YEAR) systems work in the way all schools do. Let us then take on board a whole raft of ideas and present them as drivers, approaches and solutions. For me nearly every approach mentioned falls dangerously short of what is needed to promote learning partnerships and simply reinvents the factory school. If there is any group that fails to understand schools as organisations it is researchers. They simply do not 'get it' but think they do. The book title somehow patronising and presents parents as something less than what they are. Parents do matter and it is for schools to forge the key partnership links to ensure this remains so. However, any school that has Year pastoral care systems will never do this well...remotely well. How a school functions as a learning system is critical. Parent partnership has to be built in to the system not added on. Think customer care as a starter.
