Planning Parent-Implemented Programs: A Guide for Parents, Schools and Communities.
Foster, Florence P.
This booklet is the product of a small but diverse group of parents and professionals who came together to try to alleviate the problems posed by the escalating struggle for power in the schools. They hope that through parent-implemented Follow Through programs, discontented members of the community can be made to feel that they have a significant role in the schools' decision making processes. Follow Through is explained as an extension of Head Start and the booklet relates some of the work of the New Jersey Work-Study Conference which proposed a plan for parent involvement. A tentative framework for educational decision making is proposed, with emphasis on making parents feel that they share in the policy making process and on casting professionals in a liaison role. A phase-by-phase outline of the plan is included which shows how various details can be handled, from budget and facilities to personnel and community relations. (MH)
