Compton-Lilly, Catherine
Language Arts, v77 n5 p420-27 May 2000
Interviews poor urban parents and first-grade students about attitudes toward school and education. Finds parents are committed to their children's success in school. Examines things parents do to keep their children on track; parents' descriptions of teachers in their own lives; how grandparents help keep students "on track"; and the teacher's role from the perspective of students and parents.
