Low-Income Parents and the Schools: A Research Report and a Plan for Action.
Davies, Don
Equity and Choice, v4 n3 p51-57 Spr 1988
Interviews with 150 low-income parents in three countries reveal that their low involvement with the schools was due to the fact that teachers and administrators have a substandard view of low-socioeconomic status families, and the parents have low assessments of their own educational effectiveness. Empowerment programs in each country are discussed, and their common elements identified. (BJV)
