This book explores research on processes that influence family-school partnerships in support of student learning and education. It highlights research related to culture, contexts, and development as families and schools work together to promote smooth transitions and academic achievement. The volume discusses research related to family and community engagement with schools, and describes the various mechanisms by which partnerships may support students’ long-term developmental outcomes and success beyond school. Each chapter sets forth a forward-thinking research agenda aimed at further understanding and implementing the processes by which family-school partnerships promote children’s healthy adjustment. In addition to examining critical and emerging issues, this unique book also provides robust strategies, data, and rationales across the following areas: Cultural processes and the connections among home, school, and community. Family-school relationships during adolescence. Achievement mediators of family engagement in children’s education. Continuities and consistencies across home and school systems.

Pathways to Academic Success in Higher Education examines two major challenges facing the nation. The first is preparing high school students for college, a reform that has been tackled largely through state policy initiatives. The second is creating new pathways to academic success for underrepresented students in higher education, a challenge that must be addressed within a decentralized system of higher education. Part one: Presents and documents key findings from research on K-12 education policy. Part two: Provides action research using a state data system to inform colleges and universities. Part three: Focuses on the future of policy and organizational initiatives to improve opportunity. This book integrates studies conducted over nearly a decade and offers guidance on how best to understand and promote retention and success once students have gained access.

Professional Development Schools offer P-12 schools and universities the opportunity to create rich learning environments for students, teacher candidates, teachers, university professors and administrators. The creation of Professional Development Schools requires careful thought and planning by leaders from both institutions who understand the importance of a systemic approach to gathering information that will allow them to build strong, sustainable partnerships. This book is a practical, hands-on guide to exploring and assessing school and university readiness and compatibility to pursue a PDS partnership. The Professional Development School Exploration and Assessment (PDSEA) Protocol provides surveys and focus group interview questions that facilitate the identification of P-12 school and teacher preparation program qualities, characteristics and perceptions to determine institutional compatibility. Collaborative discussion and PDS planning templates provide guidelines for planning new PDSs. Assessment instruments used with the PDSEA Protocol are available online. The authors offer unique insights into Professional Development Schools based on their experiences as educators in elementary, middle school, high school and as university professors who have been active in Professional Development Schools for 13 years. In this book, they share their insights and practical ideas about what it takes to develop viable and sustainable Professional Development Schools. Developed over a period of 8 years in a study that involved three universities and 13 partner schools, the PDSEA Protocol will assist teacher preparation programs, P-12 school districts and individual school sites as they explore, assess and plan school-university partnerships.

This book is concerned with the development of prevention policies and approaches that involve intervention 'early' in the lives of children, young people and their families, and explores new evidence that has been emerging from longitudinal and developmental prevention research. It addresses a number of key challenges, arguing that by broadening the research questions and exploring contributions from a wider range of disciplines our understanding of both the pathways into and out of crime and the type of interventions that might work will be greatly enhanced.
