The Family-School Connection: Theory, Research, and Practice

Bruce A. Ryan, Gerald R. Adams, Thomas P. Gullotta, Roger P. Weissberg, Robert L. Hampton

What is the nature of the relationships between family variables and children’s successes in school? An examination of this question is the basis of this volume. Building on a model for evaluating the relationships between families, schools and children, the contributors analyze: how school achievement is influenced by parent-child interactions; how early adolescents are affected by the overlapping `spheres of influence' of school, family, community and peer group; and how family environment influences educational attainment. Other issues discussed include: education for children with learning difficulties; school truancy; and the effects of parental discord and divorce on children’s learning. In conclusion, the book offers examples of prevention and intervention.
