Education is never a neutral commodity. In every society, the content, process and context of education are intrinsically related to the character and future of that society. If democratic societies cherish the values of individualism, egalitarianism and participatory government, schools must model inclusion and partnership. Safran states that the task of creating educational partnerships is as challenging as it is essential. He suggests that what is required is a new way of thinking about the goals of parent involvement and new approaches to training teachers if educational partnerships are to be successful.
