Parental Involvement as Social Capital: Differential Effectiveness on Science Achievement, Truancy, and Dropping Out.
McNeal, Ralph B., Jr.
Social Forces, v78 n1 p117-44 Sep 1999
Analysis of National Educational Longitudinal Study data examined measures of parent/student involvement (parent/child discussion, involvement in parent/teacher organization, monitoring adolescent behavior, educational-support strategies) and their effects on achievement, truancy, and dropping out. Parental involvement generally explained behavioral but not cognitive outcomes and had greater effects for more affluent and white students. Contains 61 references. (Author/SV)
