NFPI Report: Fathers’ Involvement in their Children’s Education
Rebecca Goldman’s Fathers’ Involvement in their Children’s Education is the best document ever written on this fascinating topic, thoroughly grounded in research, yet full of lively and fascinating case histories that will inspire anyone thinking about trying to engage fathers in schools or in family learning. Ms. Goldman begins by describing fathers’ involvement – how much of it is there? what forms does it take? She then looks at the ‘why’s’ of involving dads: how are children affected? and how do fathers, mothers and schools benefit when dads do their bit? The next part of the report looks at the barriers to fathers’ involvement, followed by a substantial section on practice – first the general principles, then thirteen inspiring case studies. This report is a must-read for researchers, policy makers and practitioners, and will have international relevance.
