How Proactive Parent-School Involvement Changes Educational Opportunities for At-Risk Children. 1987-1991 Report.
Romines, Kenneth R.
This report reviews 5 years of work involving the Parent Empowerment Project (PEP) and also examines the results of a study that was undertaken to plot the changes in school performance of at-risk children and youth that have occurred since their parents became involved with PEP. It includes: (1) a summary of the demographics and characteristics of PEP participants; (2) an analysis of the similarities and differences in the 1990-1991 support groups and those of prior years; (3) a summary of the progress of the leadership training component of PEP; (4) a progress report and description of the Family Math and Family Science Workshops; (5) the status of how PEP is preparing to become self-sufficient after the private funding is complete next year; (6) new developments in PEP; (7) reflections on what continues to be learned from working with PEP; and (8) the initial report of research into whether parents' PEP participation affects their children's academic performance and chances of staying in school. Appendices include a description of the family math and science curricula, a copy of the PEP questionnaire, and an outline of the PEP Parent Leadership Curriculum. (GLR)
