ERS Spectrum, v11 n1 p3-6 Win 1993
Aware of increasing poverty among his students, a Virginia principal enlisted a retired teacher's assistance to provide direct support for underachieving students' families. After developing trust and rapport with identified families, the home-school consultant visited families to establish mutual goals, ranging from obtaining medical care, food, clothing, job training, and employment to providing basic educational materials and homework advice.
