A Global Playbook for Family and School Engagement

Join us for an engaging session on family-school collaboration to support thriving students and communities. The COVID-19 pandemic put the topic of family engagement on the map for schools around the world and there is an opportunity to transform how schools engage families and communities for the long-term. Schools with high quality family engagement are 10 times more likely to improve student learning outcomes and around the world it has been shown to be the most cost-effective strategy for improving student attendance and completion. But what is the secret sauce to doing high quality family engagement? The Center for Universal Education (CUE) at Brookings’ has recently published after three years of in-depth research detailed resource guiding education leaders and their partners on just this question. Together with 50 project collaborators across 12 countries – jurisdiction leaders, civil society partners, and the private sector – CUE has surveyed over 25,000 parents and 6,000 teachers and reviewed over 500 family engagement strategies to provide insight and practical guidance to education leaders and their partners in their playbook: Collaborating to improve and transform education systems: A playbook for family-school engagement. Come hear about the key insights and innovative strategies from this groundbreaking work through a discussion with Brookings experts and system leaders and practitioners that are part of CUE’s Family Engagement in Education Network.
