Journal of Educational Research, v94 n1 p42-54 Sep-Oct 2000
Investigated the involvement of Mexican American parents in their children's elementary schools. Interviews with teachers, parents, and administrators and observations of parent activities indicated that parent involvement was influenced by factors like language, parent cliques, parent education, school staff attitudes, cultural factors, and family issues. Overall, teachers did not recognize the influence of these factors on parent involvement. (SM)
