Description
School principal Roberta Kirshbaum earned accolades from The New York Times for turning P.S. 75 in Manhattan into a model of parental involvement and academic innovation. In Parent Power, she offers parents the specific they need to become full partners in their kids' schools. Kirshbaum steers parents toward effective ways to work with teachers, school administrators, and their own kids, from inviting a teacher to dinner to holding a safe graduation night.The book is jam-packed with samples that readers can adopt for their own use, including sample notes to teachers; letters to principals; school checklists; education foundation goals; curriculum; press releases; and more. The book also includes short lists of the best ways parents in different situations can be involved: activities can be selected based on whether you're a single parent, a full-time working parent, if you have more than one child, if your child is in junior high, etc.With an extensive list of organizations, websites, periodicals, and hotlines, this book should be at the top of the required reading list for Parental Involvement 101.
