About the Author

Anthony Feiler is a Reader in Education at The Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol, and was previously Head of Psychology at Bath Spa University. After teaching in a London primary school, Anthony spent fourteen years in professional practice as an educational psychologist. His research interests include teacher-parent collaboration, special educational needs and inclusive education, support strategies for disabled children and early literacy intervention.


"Nevertheless, the book presents a readable and scholarly account of important issues regarding the involvement of "hard to reach" parents. In my opinion it will be more appreciated by researchers and academics wanting to study parental involvement in education than it will by teachers wanting to improve what their schools do to optimize this." (Educational Review, 31 August 2011)
