Ogbu, John U.
This paper evaluates the Institute's training program, which was designed to help teachers and other educators make parent participation and community involvement in bilingual/bicultural education more effective. Focused on is the effectiveness of the anthropological techniques to which participants in the training program were introduced. The training program and its objectives are described, as well as the design of the evaluation, particularly its "ethnographic component." Responses of the training program participants to an evaluation questionnaire are summarized. Taken into account are the language, ethnic, and general background characteristics of the participants and their knowledge about a cultural approach to parent participation before and after the training program. Response data are analyzed and findings are discussed. Recommendations concerning efforts of the training program to make bilingual/bicultural education more effective are outlined. (EB)
