Working Parents Project (WPP), Division of Family, School and Community Studies (DFSCS) Annual Report and Executive Summary.
Espinoza, Renato; And Others
The basic goal of the Working Parents Project (WPP) has been to contribute to the understanding of issues arising from the relationship between work and family life. The WPP perspective pays particular attention to the ways workplace culture affects the ability of family members to participate in their children's education at home and in school. The introduction of this annual report for the period December l983 through November 1984 provides an overview of the project and definitions of terms. Previous work and the need for continuing work are subsequently described and discussed. In addition, project goals and objectives for fiscal year 1984 are delineated, and major activities and accomplishments are described. Finally, the report briefly offers conclusions and a list of submissions made to the contracting agency. Most of the material in this report is presented in five appendixes. The appendices comprise the following: (1) "Comparison of Work and Family Life among Dual-Earner and Single Parent Families"; (2) "Involving Dual-Earner and Single Working Parent Families in the Education of Their Children: Some Recommendations for Action"; (3) "Dual-Earner, Single Working Parent Families and Education: Recommendations for School-Business collaboration"; (4) an extensive bibliography of related materials; and (5) a directory of individual and organizational resources.
