The work of school, family and community partnerships is complex and messy and demands a thoughtful and deep investigation. Currently, parent and community involvement does not draw on school reform and educational change literature and conversely the school change literature often ignores the crucial role that communities play in educational reform. This edited volume focuses on structural considerations regarding education and the school communities, schoollevel and family culture, and the interrelationships between the agency and actions of school personnel, family members, community citizens and students. This book extends the dialogue on school reform by looking at parent and community engagement initiatives as part of the school reform literature. The contributors illustrate the negative impact on students and their education when assumptions made by school personnel regarding the organization of education, the nature of families, and the contributions they should make to their children’s education are not challenged.

The purpose of this study was to investigate urban secondary school students' attitudes toward physical education. A secondary purpose of this study was to investigate urban secondary school students' attitudes toward physical education by gender and grade level. The instrument used to measure urban students' attitudes toward physical education was developed by Subramaniam and Silverman (2000). Psychometric evidence of validity and reliability for the instrument was provided in the pilot study. Participants in the pilot study were 502 urban secondary school students. The results from the pilot study indicated that the G-C alpha reliability coefficient for the factors to assess urban secondary school students' attitudes toward physical education ranged from .97 affect (enjoyment) to .96 cognition (usefulness). Fit statistics indicated that the scores from the instrument for attitudes toward physical education showed properties of construct validity for high school students. The study to investigate urban secondary school students' attitudes toward physical education consisted of 3656 students from 17 high schools in the New York City Department of Education. The results suggested that students in the 9th grade scored higher than students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades. Additionally, males scored higher than females for all sub-factors (enjoyment-teacher, enjoyment-curriculum, usefulness-teacher and usefulness-curriculum). Scores for males remained stable as they progressed through grades while scores for females decreased as grade level increased. Scores for students were moderate indicating that these students, may possess less than positive attitudes toward physical education.

Science educators have included the development of scientific attitude among the general aims of science education since the beginning of the present century. To many science educators, a man with scientific attitude looks for the natural causes of events, is open-minded towards the work and opinion of others and towards information related to his problem, forms opinion and conclusions on adequate evidence, evaluates techniques and procedures used and information obtained, and is curious concerning the things he observes. Contents: Introduction, Related Literature, Research Design, Data Analysis, Summary, Conclusions and Discussion.
