ProQuest, 2006 - 68 pages
Latino parent engagement in school and home-based activities was investigated. The focus of this analysis is to explore the practices of three outreach programs that have been successful in increasing the rates of school and home-based involvement activities for low-income Latino parent populations. Specifically, the study will explore: (1) programmatic elements of each program; (2) effective practices in increasing Latino parent participation; (3) program effectiveness. This qualitative study utilized in-depth interviews with program personnel as well as collect programmatic information via the Internet. Data yielded from the interviews and Internet search was analyzed to identify each of the program's main components of effective practices in increasing Latino parent participation. The main findings of the study identify several effective strategies in engaging Latino parents in school and home-based activities, and therefore pose important implications for educators and parents.
