Effect of Parent Involvement in an Early Intervention Program Upon Environmental Process Variables Related to Achievement.
Slaughter, Helen B.
This study was designed to assess the extent to which certain parent-child interaction variables (particularly those concerned with socialization) and the child's language background, influenced early school achievement. Subjects were 106, 4-year-old children and their parents who participated in a compensatory preschool intervention program. The program consisted of two major elements: (1) an early education program for the children, conducted in a classroom setting five mornings per week; and (2) a parent participation and education component. Participants' racial-ethnic backgrounds were Mexican-American, black American, Yacqui Indian, and Anglo. Results indicate that the difference in parents' skills as socialization agents, regardless of the language used at home, influences achievement. (ED)
