Can the Epstein Model of Parental Involvement Work in a High-Minority, High-Poverty Elementary School? A Case Study
Bower, Heather A.; Griffin, Dana
Professional School Counseling, v15 n2 p77-87 Dec 2011
The literature has lauded parental involvement as an effective strategy to increase student achievement, but schools still struggle with how to effectively involve parents of color and low-income families. In an effort to assess the effectiveness of the Epstein Model of Parental Involvement in high-poverty, high-minority schools, the authors conducted a case study of an urban elementary school that uses parental involvement practices stipulated in the model. This article provides implications for school counselors and suggestions for future research.
