>From the PEN Weekly Newsblast:

Harvard Family Research Project has just released the Winter 2004/2005
issue of "The Evaluation Exchange." The latest issue's topic is evaluating
programs that promote families' involvement in children's learning and
development. The new issue compiles the current knowledge base on family
support and involvement programs and provides a continuous perspective on
family processes surrounding children's learning and development, from a
child's early years through adolescence. Articles in the issue address the
challenges of evaluating family programs, including the need for
conceptual clarity, methodological rigor, accountability, and contextual
responsiveness. In an interview with Jeanne Brooks-Gunn she reflects on
breakthrough findings and new directions for research, evaluation, and
practice in family-focused interventions. Rounding out the issue are
examples of ongoing evaluations of parent leadership and organizing
programs that are working to ensure that schools serve all children at
high standards. The issue is available in full online at:

In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The
learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer
exists. -Eric Hoffer, philosopher and author (1902-1983)
