Capstone Project (Open Access)
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
Parent involvement is essential to every child’s education. This senior capstone examines how a group of pre-service and in-service teachers called “Las Comadres” could really involve Latino parent involvement in their children’s education. While school perceives parental involvement in their traditional way, Los Comadres perceived that “platicas – conversation” is the culturally appropriate way to involve Latino parents in their children’s education regardless of their language barriers.
