Fann, Amy; Jarsky, Karen McClafferty; McDonough, Patricia M.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v8 n4 p374-393 2009
Parents who have not had opportunities to attend college themselves have neither experience with the process of college preparation and college going nor sufficient access to needed information. This article describes a collaborative venture between a university department of education and a cluster of local schools designed to help parents of first-generation students become active participants in their children's college preparation and planning, shedding light on the importance of parental involvement in the college-going process. (Contains 2 tables.)
