Erickson, Karen; McBeath, Gerald A.
Northern Review: A Multidisciplinary Journal of the Arts and Social Sciences of the North, n20 p11-40 Win 1999
A long-term study in rural Alaska schools examined effects of parent involvement on student outcomes in three parental-role typologies: trust-building activities to close the school-community gap, informal parent involvement, and parent participation in school governance. The influences of stability of school conditions and socioeconomic variables are discussed, as well as applications to other circumpolar regions. (SV)
