Student Home Environment, Educational Achievement, and Compensatory Education. Technical Report #4 from the Study of the Sustaining Effects of Compensatory Education on Basic Skills.
Hinckley, Ronald H., Ed.; And Others
This report on Compensatory Education (CE) examines the effect of home environment on academic achievement. Part one presents findings on the home environment and student achievement, parental awareness and participation in CE, parental involvement in the educational process, parent attitudes toward the child's education, school CE fund receipt status, and the student's relationship to the Title I allocation criteria. In part two, scores on achievement tests of vocabulary, reading comprehension, math concepts, and math computation are studied in relation to combinations of social, demographic, and economic characteristics. The third part is a series of tables and figures which present the detailed data upon which most of the analyses in this report are based. (Author/JCD)
