"This timely book builds a compelling argument for the importance and urgency of creating positive relationships between school and home, especially with families experiencing unique or challenging circumstances. Feiler persuasively proposes moving toward 'more reachable schools', which no doubt can lead to positive outcomes for children and families. In this book, readers will find an excellent road map to better understanding and achieving healthy family-professional partnerships."
—Professor Elizabeth J. Erwin, Ed.D., Montclair State University College of Education, USA
"This is a readable yet academically rigorous book that draws together findings from contemporary theory, research and practice. It provides a range of positive and constructive approaches for schools and other organizations which will help them to meet the challenge of engaging effectively with parents, and in so doing improve the quality of education for all children, especially those from disadvantaged communities."
—Peter Farrell, Sarah Fielden Professor of Special Needs and Educational Psychology, School of Education, University of Manchester
"Clarity and integrity permeate this important book. An excellent variety of real-life examples of school-parent collaboration is discussed, and the balance of policy, theory and practice is outstandingly well-handled. This highly readable book will appeal to both practitioners and education students from the UK and from international contexts."
—Professor Gary Thomas, Head of School of Education, University of Birmingham
