Parent and family education featured in Connect

WalkerS-pref.jpgWhen all of the stakeholders--parents, community members, teachers, administrators--come together to collectively influence school-related decisions, student achievement improves. Parent and family education associate professor Susan Walker advises administrators to get out of the principal's office and out into the community if they want to foster parental leadership.

The article on collective leadership, "Come Together," can be found in the Winter/Spring 2010 Connect.
