Productive School-Family Partnerships for Learning


As the country reels from learning interruptions, Columbia's Center for Public Research and Leadership found that schools that engaged families through high-quality instructional materials and technology saw the same or better outcomes than a ‘normal’ year. Focusing on schools serving Black and Brown students from low-income backgrounds, we provide real-world examples of how digitally accessible, high-quality instructional materials sustain productive partnerships between schools and families.
