"Nevertheless, the book presents a readable and scholarly account of important issues regarding the involvement of "hard to reach" parents. In my opinion it will be more appreciated by researchers and academics wanting to study parental involvement in education than it will by teachers wanting to improve what their schools do to optimize this."
