Why Some Parents Don't Come to School.
Finders, Margaret; Lewis, Cynthia
Educational Leadership, v51 n8 p50-54 May 1994
Too often, parents' social, economic, linguistic, and cultural practices are represented as serious problems, rather than valued knowledge. Some parents do not feel comfortable in the teachers' domain. Schools can help by clarifying how parents can help, encouraging them to be assertive, developing trust, building on home experience, and using parent expertise. (MLH)
