“Parent and Community Involvement in a College/Career-Ready Culture” is a new report from the Texas Comprehensive Center.
Here’s an excerpt from its introduction:
The literature on parent and community involvement is extensive.
However, there is little rigorous, experimental research; rather, the
literature consists primarily of descriptive case studies or correlation
studies, along with numerous studies involving survey data. The
same holds true for research around development of career and
college readiness. Furthermore, there is very little to be found on
the combined topics of parent/community involvement, college/
career readiness, and student achievement.
The information provided in the research portion of this briefing
paper reports on experimental findings or literature reviews
published since the beginning of 2000.
It’s worth a look….
