From multiple disciplinary perspectives, the authors examine the roles of biology, institutional impediments, discrimination, and women's choices. A 'must read' for all concerned with the role of women in contemporary higher education." -- Myra H. Strober, Stanford University
"This practical resource will help educators to identify, address, and meet the needs of the diverse families in today√≠s classrooms. It is the first book to critically examine how families are represented in the media, schools, and other institutions and apply that information to building effective home-school partnerships. The authors examine how different relationships between families and teachers are defined by discourses that circulate through formal and informal curricula. They explore how families and educators can collectively reconceptualize these conversations to create positive educational experiences for children. Discussion questions are included in each chapter so that readers can examine their working relationships with the families of their students."
