Parent Involvement: The Key to Improved Student Achievement.
Hara, Steven R.; Burke, Daniel J.
School Community Journal, v8 n2 p9-19 Fall-Win 1998
To discover whether the salubrious effects of parental involvement hold for inner-city students, a Chicago elementary school researched, planned, implemented, and evaluated a broad-based parental participation program serving third-graders. Participating students' reading achievement improved by four months, and parents' interest in education peaked considerably. (18 references) (MLH)
