This text takes an ecological, systems approach to the study of children and families in the school system. It focuses on the family as the "first teacher" of the child and provides the most effective strategies for involving parents in school settings. The authors examine the diversity of families in regard to culture, lifestyle, and specific issues, such as children with disabilities. As a main text for undergraduate and graduate courses in Human Ecology, Human Environmental Sciences, Child and Family Studies, and Early Childhood Education, it provides comprehensive coverage of what teachers need to know in order to work effectively with young children and their families.
