Beyond the Bake Sale book link
Countless studies demonstrate that students with parents actively
involved in their education at home and school are more likely to earn
higher grades and test scores, enroll in higher-level programs, graduate
from high school, and go on to post-secondary education. Beyond the Bake Sale shows how to form these essential partnerships and how to make them work.
Packed with tips from principals and teachers, checklists, and an invaluable resource section, Beyond the Bake Sale
reveals how to build strong collaborative relationships and offers
practical advice for improving interactions between parents and
teachers, from insuring that PTA groups are constructive and inclusive
to navigating the complex issues surrounding diversity in the classroom.
Written with candor, clarity, and humor, Beyond the Bake Sale
is essential reading for teachers, parents on the front lines in public
schools, and administrators and policy makers at all levels.
