McLaughlin, Milbrey W.; Shields, Patrick M.
Phi Delta Kappan, v69 n2 p156-60 Oct 1987
Efforts to involve low income parents in their children's education over the past 20 years suggest that improvement occurs as a result of some element of pressure and support that takes into account the parents' schedule and needs. Teachers and administrators must also be motivated to try new strategies. Includes references. (MD)
