Parent Involvement in the Education of Minority Language Children. A Resource Handbook.
Crespo, Orestes I., Comp.; Louque, Patricia, Comp.
A resource handbook is presented that provides an overview of parent and community involvement to assist local and state education agencies, higher education institutions, and other nonprofit organizations in enhancing the partnership between school and home for the benefit of minority language group students. The guide covers the following topics: establishing and maintaining effective parent and community involvement, Title VII programs, the Federal bilingual education Part C research agenda, and related resources. The section on Title VII programs with an emphasis on parent training describes the related legislation and parameters for capacity-building (basic) grants, demonstration projects, and parent training programs, also listing them by state. The section on program implementation cites three examples of parent training programs. The section on the Part C research agenda outlines the perceived research needs and summarizes a study of parental involvement in four Federal education programs. The section on resources gives the addresses of Title VII resources (bilingual education multifunctional support centers; evaluation, dissemination and assessment centers; the National Clearinghouse for Bilingual Education, and state education agencies) and other associations, organizations, and institutes. A bibliography of relevant journal articles from 1979-83 is appended. (MSE)
