Summary

Parents as Partners in Education, Eighth Edition, is uniquely the most comprehensive book on the market covering the history of parenting and parent/school collaboration, current issues and population trends affecting American schools and communities, diverse family structures, and techniques for establishing a connection with parents and encouraging involvement with their child#x19;s learning. #xA0; Based on the notion of funds of knowledge, the knowledge that children acquire from their families, this best-selling textbook helps the reader differentiate between culture and diversity as they relate to culturally and linguistically diverse families. Rather than following a tourist approach to culture, this new edition focuses on culturally relevant pedagogy to work with children and their families, particularly those who are English language learners and immigrant children. A special focus on culturally and linguistically diverse children with special needs is a remarkable aspect of the book.

Eugenia Hepworth Berger became interested in parent involvement when she and her husband, Glen, became the parents of three children who attended public schools. A professional in early childhood education, sociology, family-life education, and parent education for 30 years, she has two master's degrees and a Ph.D. in sociological foundations of education. Eugenia is active in many professional organizations, including the Association for Childhood Education International, the National Council on Family Relations, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (life member), the National Council for Social Studies, and the American Sociological Association. In 1994-1995 she served on the board of the National Association of Early Childhood Teacher Educators. She has been a board member of the Colorado Association for Childhood Education, served as president of the Rocky Mountain Council on Family Relations for three years, and served on the board of the Colorado Association for the Education of Young Children, 1998-2001. She has coordinated many conferences, ranging from the Colorado Year of the Child in 1979 to ACEI and RMCF state conferences in the 1980s and 1990s. Prior to becoming a college professor, she was a public school teacher and director of a parent education program. A faculty member at Metropolitan State College of Denver since 1968, she wrote the early childhood education certification program and the minor in early childhood, and coordinated the early childhood education program for eight years.
