  5. Shining at the Heart of Controversy

  6. A full review of the literature leaves one with the impression that schools strongly emphasize how parents can learn from schools but give little attention to how schools might learn from parents. Families can, of course, learn a great deal about literacy development from the school but it is also true that teachers need to learn more about how parents and children share literacy on a daily basis and to explore how such events can serve school learning. ~Morrow & Paratore, 1993, pp. 197-198
