Despite the ever-changing demographics of the United States and decisions made by the Supreme Court, racial tensions and turmoil continue to affect daily life in a multitude of environments. In educational environments, advancements in teaching technologies, in conjunction with these tensions, require cooperation between parents and school personnel to promote student success. This title is a critical scholarly resource that explores the importance of cooperation between parents, teachers, and administrators to create valuable support systems that will promote student success through strategies using social justice. Featuring a wide range of topics, such as parent collaboration, bilingualism, and community-based partnerships, this book is geared toward academicians, researchers, and teachers seeking current research on the importance of cooperation between parents and education professionals in encouraging positive student outcomes in multicultural learning environments.
