Inner City Parents Attended Mathematics Classes - Why?
Johnson, Willis N.
A study was conducted in the inner city of Houston, Texas with three parent groups and four pupil groups to determine what parents did which would have an influence on student outcomes. Parent groups (selected from those who had fifth-grade children) included parents who attended training sessions and also those who attended training sessions and helped tutor students. This paper analyzes why parents came to training sessions regarding elementary school mathematics, their reactions to the sessions, and recommendations for future sessions. Comments regarding parental attitudes comprise most of the paper. (Author/RH)
