Parent Involvement in Unusually Successful Compensatory Education.
Griswold, Philip A.
Parent involvement activities from 116 unusually successful Chapter 1 projects for educationally disadvantaged students were evaluated. The activities were found to be similar to activities in earlier projects under Title 1, and generally initiated by the school. Common activities included parent committees, parent-teacher interaction opportunities, and workshops demonstrating instructional activities that can be used at home. Experts and researchers in the field of parent involvement advocate home reinforcement of school learning, where parents are trained to supplement school work at home, and to monitor and encourage their children's learning. Although it cannot be said that successful Chapter 1 projects overlook home reinforcement, it surely seems to be underemphasized; perhaps due more to a lack of information of what and how to implement than a contrary philosophy.
