Schools and parents are partners in healthy child development outcomes. Until recently, research on the fathers’ unique contributions in children’s schools had been limited. This is unfortunate as father involvement has shown to generatively affect child social, emotional and academic development. At the same time, it has been documented that fathers rarely participate in parent involvement groups. This book uncovers three clustered themes: safety; supportive relationships; and shared instructional leadership, from five accessible, responsible and engaged fathers that merit consideration and discussion. The experiences revealed here are starting places for researchers, educators and parents interested in extending the present understanding of involved fathers and child development. Aaron Juniper, PhD is a leading advocate of paternal accessibility, social responsibility and civic engagement.
