Lewis, Amanda E.; Forman, Tyrone A.
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v33 n1 p60-89 Mar 2002
Describes parent-staff relationships at two public elementary schools with significant parent participation. At one, accommodation and community typify parent-teacher interactions, while at the other, interactions are ambivalent and competitive. Suggests that social class and school culture interact to shape what is possible for parents and teachers to accomplish in the way of forming strong and meaningful relationships. (SM)
