About the Author:

William L. Callison is an emeritus professor of Educational Leadership at California State University at Fullerton. He has been deeply involved in the parent involvement program of the Even Start Program in the Bakersfield (California) City (Elementary) School District as the evaluator for three years. Even Start is primarily a program for low income parents built around the assumption that the best way to help young children (three year olds in this program) to prepare for school is to have mothers bring their child to a two hour morning program five days a week, 45 weeks a year. The children prepare for kindergarten and the mothers learn to read and to take care of their children. The mothers also are working to pass the GED high school equivalency examination. Callison has also been involved in the creation of the Head Start Supplementary Training Program which he has also served as National Director for. This parent training effort has operated since 1966 and involves scores of small staff and parent groups in every state as they learn to be Teacher Aides in Head Start classrooms.

Review:

Callison...cites recent research on the influence of parent involvement on test scores, and recommends changes to take advantage of family factors. (Reference and Research Book News)

Book Description ScarecrowEducation, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A critical dimension of effective schooling is parent involvement. Research has shown conclusively, that parent involvement at home improves student achievement. Furthermore, when parents are involved at school, children accomplish more and attend better schools. In this book, William Callison focuses on the role of parents in helping their children succeed in school. There is increasing evidence that parent involvement increases test scores. New research by Hoxby indicates that family factors are more than 11 times as influential as school factors in predicting student performance. Callison contends that there s an excellent opportunity to make changes, based on experience, in many schools that are dealing with the need to set high standards and institute programs that will be successful. Special Features: Identifies programs and strategies that are working, Uses the PTA s National Standards for Parent/Family Involvement Program as a guide. Callison also favors raising standards where high levels of assistance are provided to staff, not the testing approach where students may be retained in grade because of a single test score. In the programs that are seeking to help students improve their performance in a variety of assessments, how did they get parents involved in a meaningful way? The author answers this and many more pertinent questions. For PTA members, teachers, and administrators. Seller Inventory # AAC9781578861224
