Item description for Building Alliances: Schools, Parents And Communities in Hong Kong And Singapore And China (Cerc Monograph) by Maria Manzon...
This monograph explores the evolution of parental and community partnerships in education in Hong Kong and Singapore, and the local and global forces that have shaped those partnerships. It focuses on the work of two government advisory bodies established to spearhead partnership advocacy: the Committee on Home-School Co-operation (CHSC) in Hong Kong, and Community and Parents in Support of Schools (COMPASS) in Singapore. Key policy actors and local academics in the two places were interviewed to gain insiders' perspectives on the 'micro-politics' of educational partnership.
