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: http://www.gse.harvard.edu/hfrp/eval/issue28 Dianna Baycich Ohio Literacy Resource Center Research I Bld. 1100 Summit St. PO Box 5190 Kent State University Kent, OH 44242 330.672.7841 330.672.4841 (fax) 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)
