Making our high schools better: how parents and teachers can work together

Book Cover
St. Martin's Press,
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
"The Deep Chasm Between what parents want education to provide for their children and what teachers must provide for entire classrooms is one of the most vexing problems facing our nation today. Making Our High Schools Better examines how the different perspectives of parents and teachers can be understood and negotiated to improve high schools. This book examines these diverging - and sometimes contradictory - perspectives, explains why parents and teachers should work together to help all children learn, and offers suggestions of ways to open the doors to productive dialogue and collaboration. Anne Wescott Dodd and Jean L. Konzal use in-depth interviews with teachers and parents to give faces and voices to both sides of the conflict. Making Our High Schools Better is an illuminating book that does more than acknowledge problems, it seeks and discovers the steps leading to solutions."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
