Analysis of Head Start Parent Interviews.
Bank Street Coll. of Education, New York, NY.
The Parent Interview was designed by the Bank Street staff in collaboration with Head Start parents and staff from the communities. The purpose was to investigate the attitude of Head Start parents toward the program and the degree of parent participation in the three aspects of the parent program that characterize the Bank Street approach: (1) knowledge about the educational program and participation in it; (2) participation in decision-making about the educational program, and (3) personal development through activity and further education. Results of the analysis of the completed Parent Interviews indicate that parents become knowledgeable as they participate and observe in the classrooms and have an opportunity to discuss the program with the staff and other parents.
