Family Focused Program Designs: An Innovative Approach.
Johnson, Dell; Klein, Tom
This paper provides a historical and philosophical basis for parent involvement in the education of their children. It also furnishes a rationale for programs in Oregon which combine aspects of the classroom-oriented Standard Center-Based Model and the Home-Based Head Start Mode. Section One places Head Start development in Oregon in the historical context of Head Start's national development. Section Two describes the two models and explores the basis of the combined model, discusses parents as role models, and describes effects of the Oregon program's philosophical base on program design and staff roles. Included is a list of issues that need to be addressed when a Combination Center/Home-Based Model is considered for implementation. Appendices provide sources of findings of major intervention studies, Head Start parent involvement performance standards, a comparison of standard center-based, home-based, and combination-based programs, and sample variations of the combination model.
