Building Collective Capacity Through Family Engagement ft. Dr Ann Ishimaru

By Nancy Angevine-Sands

Nancy Angevine-Sands is a passionate advocate for deeper engagement in our schools. It’s much more than Parent Engagement. It’s about engaging the entire family! And it’s about Nancy’s ongoing exploration of “Why Family Engagement Matters.”

Dr Ann Ishimaru, Associate Professor at the University of Washington College of Education is Nancy’s guest for 2 episodes. In this first one, she discusses her research on family engagement in education systems that are anything but neutral. Dr. Ishimaru’s book, “Just Schools; Building Equitable Collaborations with Families and Communities” is available through the University of Toronto Press, The Teachers College Press in the USA and Amazon everywhere.
