Summary

Forty parents volunteered to take part in a study of an education program for parents of Title I primary school students. Specifically, the study sought to determine if the program could improve the parents' attitudes toward their children, themselves, and the local school. The parents were equally divided into an experimental and a control group. The experimental group participated in three-hour workshops once a week for ten weeks. These workshops were devoted to topics related to both the cognitive and affective areas of learning. Specific topics included developing language abilities, self-control, self-concept, visual perception and discrimination, social skills and emotional stability, prereading skills, and reading skills. The control group also met in three-hour workshops once a week for ten weeks and were taught phonics and observed demonstrations of classroom reading instruction. Both groups were pretested and posttested using semantic differential scales to measure their attitudes toward themselves, their children, and their children's school. The results showed that while the attitudes of the two groups were not significantly different before the program, they were significantly so after the program--with the experimental group showing a positive change in attitude.
