Attitudes of Mexican American and Anglo American Parents towards Public Education in a Rural Community.
Birch, Troy C.; Ferrin, Scott Ellis
Rural Educator, v23 n1 p1-8 Fall 2001
A study investigated attitudes and participation of 40 Mexican American and Anglo-American parents in a rural Utah elementary school. Influenced by differing culture, religion, educational attainment, socioeconomic status, and background, the two groups had different attitudes toward and participation in the public school system and thus different needs. Differences may be exacerbated by community isolation. (Contains 37 references.) (TD)
