Sheldon, Steven B.
Elementary School Journal, v102 n4 p301-16 Mar 2002
This study acknowledged that parents maintain social networks that may affect the role they play in their children's education. Survey responses of 195 mothers indicated that size of social network predicted degree of involvement and that type of network predicted type of involvement. Findings suggest that parents' social networks can function as a resource for schools and teachers. (Author/SD)
