Parent Involvement Results for the Six Parent Roles in the Parent Education Follow Through Program.
Rubin, Roberta I.
This article presents 5-year longitudinal data on parent involvement in the Parent Education Follow Through Program in ten communities in nine states. The data are categorized in terms of the six major ways in which parents can become involved in the program: (1) teachers of their own children, (2) paid paraprofessionals, (3) decision makers and policy advisors, (4) adult learners of new skills, (5) audience or recipients of information and (6) volunteers in the classroom. Program procedures for promoting these roles are described. The chief measures of parental involvement employed were the percentages of parental time spent in the different roles and percentages of the population (parents) who participated. The percentages were found to rise to high levels over the 5-year (1973-1978) period. The data are presented in six tables. (BH)
