Natural Allies: Voices of Teachers Committed to Families

Soo Hong is currently working on a book project that explores the experiences of five urban teachers who have found innovative and authentic ways to engage their students' families and communities. It features discussions of culture and community, the deep-rooted histories of the teacher-parent relationship and the necessity of confronting racism, distrust, and misunderstanding when partnership and collaboration is the goal. The project has been funded by the National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation.
