Kayla, Valencia, Franklin, and Trey: Case Studies in African American School Success and Parenting Behaviors
Murphy, Jean
Young Children, v58 n6 p85-89 Nov 2003
Murphy examines the influence of four African American families' beliefs, values, and interactions on their children's academic achievement. Parents' high expectations and focus on educational attainment, religious and spiritual values, and kinship bonds, as well as active oversight of homework and encouragement of critical thinking, establish the home climate for school success.
