Two-Generation Strategies and Involving Immigrant Parents in Children's Education
Crosnoe, Robert
Urban Institute (NJ1)
Intervening in the parent generation can improve current and future prospects in the child generation. Such two-generation strategies target either parents' life circumstances or parenting behaviors. Because many immigrants do not have the English capabilities, inside knowledge about schools, or social standing, engaging them more fully in the educational process in the home, school, and community could bring academic returns for children. This paper describes two-generation approaches to the education of young children from immigrant families that center on parental involvement in education. It focuses on Latin American and Asian immigrants, who make up the bulk of the immigrant population. (Contains 2 tables and 2 notes.) [This paper was prepared for the Young Children in Immigrant Families and the Path to Educational Success roundtable meeting at the Urban Institute, June 28, 2010.]
