"Beyond the Bake Sale" shows how to form these essential partnerships and how to make them work.
Packed with tips from principals and teachers, checklists, and an invaluable resource section, "Beyond the Bake Sale" reveals how to build strong collaborative relationships and offers practical advice for improving interactions between parents and teachers, from insuring that PTA groups are constructive and inclusive to navigating the complex issues surrounding diversity in the classroom.
Written with candor, clarity, and humor, "Beyond the Bake Sale" is essential reading for teachers, parents on the front lines in public schools, and administrators and policy makers at all levels.
