Macleod, Flora
Early Child Development and Care, v161 p107-19 Apr 2000
Examines reasons behind very low attendance of fathers at primary level family literacy events in Great Britain. Discusses rapid social and demographic changes, the sex- segregated power structure in education, the gendered nature of parental involvement in education, and the nature of family literacy events. Concludes that the environment of literacy events is a key factor in discouraging fathers' attendance. (KB)
