Family Involvement at the Secondary Level: Learning from Texas Borderland Schools
Carpenter, Bradley W.; Young, Michelle D.; Bowers, Amanda; Sanders, Kimberly
NASSP Bulletin, v100 n1 p47-70 Mar 2016
The purpose of this study is to provide an understanding of how successful secondary schools located along the Texas-Mexico border, particularly those enrolling predominantly Latino students, have supported high achievement among their student population and promoted parental involvement. The roles and perspectives of parents and school community members in the family-school relationship are examined through a secondary data analysis, as we explore how different views affect both the definitions of, as well as reasons for, involvement.
