Four Questions for Karen Mapp
In a Teaching Matters multimedia interview, Karen Mapp answers four questions about how to foster meaningful family-school connections:
  • What are some of the major challenges urban schools face in increasing family involvement in their students' education?
  • How can schools best support students who do not come from nurturing home environments?
  • What are some of the first steps schools can take to build, strengthen, and maintain partnerships with families and communities?
  • How can schools work with parents and communities to extend learning beyond the traditional school day?
