Parent Education and Involvement: A Pilot Study of Its Impact at the Lakewood, New Jersey Follow Through Program, 1978-1979.
Griswold, Philip A.; And Others
A survey was made of 95 parents who had attended at least one of several workshops designed by the Lakewood Follow Through Program to provide curriculum-related parent education enabling parents to work with their children at home. The parent workshops were designed to increase (1) time spent by parents with the child at home, (2) the ability of parents to help children with their homework, (3) parents' comfort at school, especially with teachers, and (4) general parent participation in all Follow Through activities. A survey instrument based on the four objectives of the workshops was administered in person and by telephone. Additionally, a short checklist designed to detect changes in school-work behavior as a result of parental attendance, was given to teachers of children whose parents attended a workshop. Findings are discussed and the parent workshop survey instrument as well as the teacher checklist of student behavior are appended. (RH)
