Summary

`The Second Edition is full of advice, good examples, and information for leaders in primary and secondary schools-all based on research. This is an important resource for anyone trying to improve partnerships that support student achievement′ - Wendy Harwin, School-Family-Community Partnerships Project Coordinator, Connecticut State Department of Education
