Parental Involvement in Children's Education: Considerations for School Counselors Working with Latino Immigrant Families
Gonzalez, Laura M.; Borders, L. DiAnne; Hines, Erik M.; Villalba, Jose A.; Henderson, Alia
Professional School Counseling, v16 n3 p185-193 2013
The Hoover-Dempsey et al. (2005) model of parents' involvement in their children's schools has recently been applied to Latino immigrant families. This article reviews that literature and then describes culturally appropriate strategies for school counselors to work with this population, focusing on (a) teacher and counselor invitations to the family, (b) parent or partnership-focused role construction, and (c) flexible formats for involvement that respect families with limited time. The article includes a sample Latino Family Night program.
