Working with Families, Communities, and Colleagues

Hector had trouble focusing on drawing and writing in kindergarten. So you can imagine how surprised his teacher was when she saw him on a busy city street, selling shopping bags and making change.

This chapter deals in turn with ways to build bridges between school and home as well as the subsequent teacher, school administration, and community. There is also a discussion about the issues of transition from half-day to all-day programs.
