Overview

Learning begins in families and continues throughout a child’s growth toward adulthood.

Family engagement is a shared responsibility of family members to contribute to a child’s learning and development, and of schools and communities to ensure families have the tools they need to support their children’s success in and out of school.

Global Family Research Project

● Provides leadership and a vision for how schools and other community organizations can improve family engagement efforts.

● Conducts research on the innovative and successful ways that policymakers, funders, and practitioners work toward more equitable learning and close opportunity gaps by reaching underserved families.

● Connects family engagement professionals with the knowledge and resources that help them strengthen partnerships with families to benefit children.
