Abstract

The Family School Linkages (FSL) Project of the National Institute for Urban School, now the Equity Alliance at ASU, worked with schools and families to think about and improve relationships between schools and all the families of their students. A growing number of studies show that when family members talk to their children about schooling, participate with school personnel, and support their children’s efforts, the students achieve more, attend more regularly, and are more motivated and engaged as learners. This Did You Know? is an activity designed to assist schools in understanding the difference between “Parent Involvement” and “Family/Community Linkages”, and the incredible benefits of the latter.
