Welcome to the Companion Website
Equity Partnerships provides readers with a clear roadmap for effective family/community engagement that is built upon four essential principles: communication; connection; collaboration; community. It is informed by the lens of Cultural Proficiency to address inequity and lack of access by historically-underserved demographic groups of families and communities, e.g., African American and Latinx people, same-gender parents, and parents of children with special needs. The authors of this book, Angela R. Clark-Louque, Randall B. Lindsey, Reyes L. Quezada and Cynthia L. Jew, have a good deal of experience with this topic—both as professionals and as (non-White) parents. Moreover, they strongly believe that family and community involvement in children’s educations are fundamental issues of equity. Given their backgrounds, this book will also draw from the authors' personal experiences as education professionals and parents through the use of case-like vignettes.
