Annotation

This book provides an intellectual reference framework for the education of children and young adults from the perspectives of the home, experienced and novice educators, and surrounding communities.

Publisher Description

The Family Link to Education: The Road to Personal and Professional Success is a source of information that is current and relevant for families, educators and communities that want to provide the best possible opportunities for the up and coming generations. Beginning with the family, the book gets right at the root of how the future leaders, entrepreneurs, and educators of our local, national and worldwide communities are molded by early childhood influences. The book offers many suggestions to those who (by right or circumstance) have dibs on the earliest intellectual development of children. After digging down into the family perspective of education, the book transitions to a more subject matter expert perspective on education and the educator's view of education. The student is the focus of the second part of the book, and finally, there is a reiteration of an inescapable fact; families in their various kinds, sizes and formats are the foundations upon which our communities are built.

Review

This book serves as a call to action for families to unite generations by understanding how their histories, traditions, and cultures shape education for their children. Within its pages Holiday and Sonntag dispel myths of education as an individual endeavor and weave a narrative of education as an integrative effort between parents, students, and teachers wherein collaborative work provides the best educational outcomes. In the end, readers will find a book chock-full of insights from authors who are passionate about teaching and learning in all its forms. -- Justin Low, associate professor, Gladys L. Benerd School of Education, Stockton, CA I want to personally thank both Holiday and Sonntag for introducing a new way of looking at Fatherhood. The configuration of the chapters had me starting a young life with history and understanding of one's self. I was able to relate in the "Technology Gap" chapter and refer my experiences as a child and my grandparents. I was able to gain a clear vision and path as I am a teacher. I am truly honored and grateful to be a part of this life teaching and will cherish and embrace the finding with my own family. -- Danny Tachera, teacher
