Roth, Jeffrey; Myers-Jennings, Corine; Stowell, Daniel W.
Journal for a Just and Caring Education, v3 n4 p418-32 Oct 1997
Describes how integrating services in an Even Start program in Gainesville, Florida, facilitated family literacy. Highlights specific examples from the experience that changed parents' lives. Participants gradually developed political awareness via improved self-esteem, self-confidence, assertiveness, involvement, and self-governance (in a parents' organization). Parents' perceptions reveal interagency cooperation's problems and benefits. (19 references) (MLH)
