uby Payne's 2006 contribution to the field of educational literature is Working With Parents- Building Relationships for Student Success. This is a very concise discussion on tools that can be used by anyone in the education field as they deal with their students' parents.

Parents are always both the blessing and the bane of a school, from the teachers to the administrators. The lines of communication are often fraught with miscues, misunderstandings and missteps. But both the school and the parent are working for what they feel is best of the student. Payne has written a 50 page primer that reviews the basics of successful communication, the emphasis is on working with parents from poverty and parents of wealth. 33 pages comprise the bulk of the information, the rest is called an appendix. Its format is easy to follow with bulleted and numbered lists, bold titles and tables. She includes case studies that challenges the readers to interpret and respond to scenarios to practice her suggestions. They could be used both in staff trainings or as a personal learning tool. The appendix includes an article Ms Payne wrote as part of her No Child Left Behind series. This one, number IV of the 4 part series, is "Parent and Community Involvement. It reinterates many of the points covered in the first part of the book.
