Bridging the "Gap" Between Home and School.
This paper considers home variables of parent-child interaction that affect young children's chances for school success. Data from a study of 1088 families who were assessed with the Home Environment Review (HER) are reviewed to emphasize the significance of parents' perceptions of their children and learning opportunities in the home prior to the time their youngsters entered Parent Education Follow Through (PEFT) programs in 10 communities in the United States. The philosophy and goals of the PEFT are also reviewed in order to relate ways in which the model worked to promote increased parent participation in the education of their children. This participation was generally through cooperative home-school efforts, parents and teachers formed partnerships in the best interests of the children involved. (Author/RH)
