Slaughter, Diana T.; Epps, Edgar G.
Journal of Negro Education, v56 n1 p3-20 Win 1987
Parent involvement in their children's educational experiences enhances student achievement. Low socioeconomic status (SES) and Black families often lack the human and material resources needed for a positive academic environment at home; however, positive learning environments do exist in some low-SES Black homes. More developmentally oriented, macrosocial studies are needed. (BJV)
