- Based on this week’s required studies, discuss and support the following quote from Epstein (2010):
Students help teachers, counselors, and administrators reach their families and they help their families communicate with their schools. They often are the main source of information for families about school and community programs. Without studentsâ€™ participation in communications between school and home, there will be few successful partnerships of any type at any grade level. (p. 611)
Defend your response with citations from the readings and your experience.
