Home-School Programs of Urban School Districts.
Moles, Oliver; Collins, Carter
This paper reports the results of an ongoing study of home school programs incorporating the fourth through twelfth grade levels of large urban school districts. It examines the nature and scope of programs designed to improve student learning through parent involvement in tutoring, managerial and socializing activities as they relate to educational practice. Programs are classified according to goals for students such as achievement, social development, attendance, and career plans, and according to modes of home school interaction, parent school and parent child activities. Also included is a review of selected home school programs and a set of general guidelines, objectives, and activities for prospective home school programs. (JCD)
