Attitudes and Expectations of Indochinese Parents.
Rupp, James H.
A questionnaire was given to 33 Indochinese (Vietnamese and Laotian) immigrant parents residing in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in order to discover their views of the education their elementary school children were receiving. The results indicated that the parents were, in general, pleased with their children's education. Many felt, however, that school discipline was too lax, and many parents were also concerned that their children were becoming Americanized too quickly and were not learning about their native cultures, histories, or languages. These findings can be used to help teachers establish more effective communication with Indochinese parents, thereby increasing these parents' participation in their children's schooling. (Author/GC)
