A PROGRAM OF PARENTAL EDUCATION IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF TYLER, TEXAS. (M.A. THESIS).
SPENCER, MYRTLE B.
A STUDY WAS MADE TO COLLECT INFORMATION AND DETERMINE THE NEEDS AND INTERESTS OF PARENTS IN ESTABLISHING PUBLIC SCHOOL PARENT EDUCATION CLASSES AND TO OFFER SUGGESTIONS, RECOMMEND SOURCES OF INFORMATION, AND GIVE ASSISTANCE IN DEVELOPING PARENT EDUCATION PROGRAMS. DATA ON NEED FOR PARENT EDUCATION IN TYLER, TEXAS WAS OBTAINED THROUGH QUESTIONNAIRES, INQUIRIES, INTERVIEWS, AND OBSERVATIONS. A DEFINITE NEED FOR PARENT EDUCATION WAS FOUND, SINCE THERE WERE NO PLANNED PROGRAMS IN THE 77 SCHOOLS PARTICIPATING IN THE SURVEY. IT WAS ALSO FELT THAT VALUABLE INFORMATION, GUIDANCE, AND ASSISTANCE COULD BE PROVIDED BY THE INVESTIGATOR TO PLANNERS OF PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSES. ENTHUSIASM AND COOPERATION WAS GENERATED BY THE INVESTIGATION. PARENTS REALIZED THE INFLUENCE OF HOME LIFE ON THEIR CHILD'S SCHOOL LIFE. OFFICIALS IN URBAN AND RURAL AREAS SHOULD BE URGED TO PLAN PROGRAMS TO HELP PARENTS ACQUIRE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS NEEDED. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY, SYRACUSE, N.Y. 63 PAGES.
