Report of Follow Through Parent Interview Project.
Bank Street Coll. of Education, New York, NY.
This survey, based on interviews with 896 parents, was undertaken in the Bank Street Follow Through Program in Spring 1972. The parent interview developed out of the belief of parents in the program and of Bank Street as sponsor that a program evaluation could be a fruitful project because (1) the process of the interview could be instructive to the parents, (2) interview results could provide a measure of parent attitude, (3) training in interviewing techniques for the parent interviewers could widen parent participation, and (4) the interview project could stimulate interest in parent-directed evaluation. Part I of the interview was designed to measure the degree and quality of the relationship between home and school. Part II of the interview was designed to assess the effectiveness of the Follow Through staff in providing broad services to Follow Through families. Part III of the interview was designed to measure parent participation in parent activities in Follow Through. It was concluded that the parent interview could become an instrument for ongoing self-study and development of the parent group. A summary of responses to the parent questionnaire is appended. (CS)
