The Participation of Minority-Group Parents in School Activities: A Study and a Case Study With Guidelines.
Rempson, Joe L.
The purpose of the study was to identify factors that help to explain the dynamics responsible for the participation and nonparticipation of minority-group parents in school activities. This was done to provide guidelines that, specifically, might improve the chances of an elementary school principal increasing the number of minority-group parents who make in-school contacts and that, generally, would have implications for other sectors of American life concerned with the participatory behavior of these parents. This purpose was accomplished by evaluating an experimental self-help parent education program conducted in twenty-seven public elementary schools in New York City (the case study aspect of the investigation) and, integral to this evaluation, making a status study of the school-parent programs and the Parent-Teacher Association programs in these schools and in two other similar schools. The time period covered by the study was the 1965-66 school year. [This document has been reproduced from the best available copy.] (Author/SB)
