Governments worldwide are increasingly advocating parental and community partnerships in education. This monograph explores the evolution of parental and community partnerships in Hong Kong and Singapore, and the local and global forces that have shaped those partnerships. It focuses on the work of two government advisory bodies established to spearhead partnership advocacy the Committee on Home-School operation (CHSC) in Hong Kong, and Community and Parents in Support of Schools (COMPASS) in Singapore. Key policy actors and local academics in the two states were interviewed to gain insiders’ perspectives on the ’micro-politics’ of educational partnership. Comparative educators, ministries of education, and educational policy makers will gain from this book a penetrating insight into parent-school-community partnership in a pair of Asian contexts, and may find some good practices and lessons.
