Mary E. Henry examines in close detail public schools relationships with parents and communities. Using an anthropological approach and feminist theory, she argues that for educators, knowledge of family and social contexts, and work with communities is essential. Henry argues convincingly that the school structure has to change, that more demands can't be made of parents while schools remain the same. For school administrators, teachers, parents, and those interested in public policy, the book addresses vital questions about cultural and social understandings, empowerment, and the possibilities for collaboration. This book is a source of new practices and ideas for organizational structures, and the school leadership that will be needed for collaboration to really work.
