Families as Partners: The Essential Link in Children’s Education, by Andrea M. Nelson Royes

Publication Date: 
April 2021

For the most part, children who succeed in the educational system can attest to the role parental involvement has played in their success. While some families have reneged on their responsibility or have left it up to other units in society, it is an almost undeniable fact that families are the most important point of reference insofar as educating children is concerned. In this regard, Andrea M. Nelson-Royes’ book, Families as Partners: The Essential Link in Children’s Education underscores the critical role parents and families play in the life of children, and offers a range of suggestions as to how families can be helped to appreciate this role. The information contained therein seeks to empower parents and families and critically looks at the interplay between schools, children (disabled and normal) and families themselves.
