Summary

The U.S. Department of Education's Partnership for Family Involvement in Education encourages individuals, partner organizations, and alliances, whether they are members of the Partnership or not, to develop and implement effective family involvement practices in education. The goals of the Partnership are to increase opportunities for families to become more involved in their children's education both at home and at school and to promote children's learning and achievement. This document describes the Partnership and details initiatives of partners across the country to achieve Partnership goals. Following an introduction outlining the benefits of joining the Partnership, the document describes the role of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives to support nonprofit organizations, especially small and faith-based groups, in developing and implementing social programs, such as after-school programs. Brief descriptions of currently operating programs are presented, organized by program goals, such as increasing opportunities for families to be more involved in their children's education at home and at school. Information on the Partnership for Family Involvement in Education is provided as well as a Partnership registration form. The remainder of the document consists of a summary of the education reform policy of the George W. Bush administration involving closing the achievement gap, improving literacy by putting reading first, expanding flexibility and reducing bureaucracy, rewarding success and sanctioning failure, promoting informed parental choice, improving teacher quality, and making schools safer for the 21st century.
