Williams, Thelma M.
A study was conducted of a group of New York City parents whose children were having problems in normal adjustment to school to implement improved parent school interaction. The study consists of three chapters: (1) Description of Project, (2) Findings, and (3) Recommendations. The objectives of the study are: (1) determine parents' awareness of their children's enrollment and knowledge of the program, (2) determine how parents receive program information, (3) learn parents' observation of change of child's behavior at school and home, (4) learn if programs establish closer relationship between parents and schools, and (5) learn what changes parents would suggest. The report also contains three appendices: (1) instruments, (2) new structure for parent-school relationships (an outline for a parent's handbook which might be used to improve parent-school relationships) and (3) participants involved.
