nAFSCE is Re-Framing the Conversation around family Engagement

The FrameWorks Institute conducted ground-breaking research on how the public thinks about family engagement and what can help expand that understanding. After three years of research, 72 focused interviews, and more than 6,000 participants, the research provides clear recommendations on how to talk about family engagement so that people will understand it, value it, and support it.
