The "City Migrant" Dilemma: Building Community at High-Mobility Urban Schools.
Nakagawa, Kathryn; Stafford, Mary E.; Fisher, Teresa A.; Matthews, Linda
Urban Education, v37 n1 p96-125 Jan 2002
Surveyed urban elementary school principals and conducted case studies at high-mobility schools, examining how schools with higher mobility levels attempted to build community. Schools with high mobility levels implemented many programs and practices to help families, such as access to counseling services and adult education classes as well as opportunities for parent involvement. Though these schools worked at building community, these attempts did not translate into greater family involvement. (SM)
