SCHOOL-HOME PARTNERSHIP IN DEPRESSED URBAN NEIGHBORHOODS.
FUSCO, GENE C.
A SURVEY OF PRACTICES OF SCHOOLS IN TYPICALLY DEPRESSED URBAN AREAS FROM FOUR LARGE CITIES IS PRESENTED. STAFFING AND PROGRAM PLANNING ARE DISCUSSED. PRACTICES SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED TO HELP PARENTS LEARN HOW TO PARTICIPATE MEANINGFULLY IN THE EDUCATION OF THEIR CHILDREN. IN PREPARING THE PRESCHOOL CHILD, PARENT AID MAY BE ENLISTED THROUGH OBSERVATION AND COOPERATIVE NURSERIES. PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES ARE IMPORTANT, GROUP CONFERENCES AND ACTIVITIES MAY ALSO BE USED. ANOTHER AIM OF THESE PROGRAMS IS TO ASSIST PARENTS TO DEVELOP THEIR ABILITIES AND TO IMPROVE HOME AND COMMUNITY LIFE. ADULT EDUCATION CLASSES ARE GIVEN AND FAMILY ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS ORGANIZED. OTHER PROGRAMS ENCOURAGE POSITIVE CIVIC ATTITUDES AND TRY TO DEVELOP INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP. PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES AIMED AT DEVELOPING SCHOOL-HOME RELATIONS SHOULD BE DESIGNED WITH SPECIFIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE COMMUNITY IN MIND. AREAS FOR FURTHER RESEARCH ARE MENTIONED. THE APPENDIX GIVES SPECIFIC DESCRIPTIONS OF PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS.
