It will present a range of differing intervention models in order that links between parental involvement and pupil learning and adjustment can be explored. A key aim of this unit will be to develop students understanding that one size does not fit all in the field of parental involvement. Linked to this is the aim of extending students ability to analyse critically a range of policy and research-based initiatives so that students can reflect on and develop their own professional practice.

Provides practical help for developing closer relationships between parents and schools. Reviews "Nevertheless, the book presents a readable and scholarly account of important issues regarding the involvement of "hard to reach" parents. In my opinion it will be more appreciated by researchers and academics wanting to study parental involvement in education than it will by teachers wanting to improve what their schools do to optimize this. After teaching in a London primary school, Anthony spent fourteen years in professional practice as an educational psychologist. His research interests include teacher-parent collaboration, special educational needs and inclusive education, support strategies for disabled children and early literacy intervention.
