A Case Study of Parental Involvement in a Conversion from Transitional to Dual Language Instruction.
Pena, Robert A.
Bilingual Research Journal, v22 n2-4 p237-59 Spr-Fall 1998
A case study examined interactions between elementary school staff and 18 Mexican American parents during the school's conversion to a dual language program. Although parents were included in program planning, parental satisfaction and involvement declined with time. Analysis suggests that parents were alienated as educators' ideals were overridden by organizational imperatives to accomplish specific ends. (Contains 31 references.) (SV)
