Karther, Diane; Lowden, Frances
Journal of Early Education and Family Review, v5 n1 p8-13 Sep-Oct 1997
Discusses research on the impact of home environment on children's school achievement. Explores positive models of home environments, parent attitudes, parents as teachers, home learning activities/materials, and school preparation. Concludes that though risk factors exist in certain families, parents can nurture high-performing children if educators devise strategies to involve parents with limited resources to form a strong home-school partnership.
