Predictors of involvement in Head Start services among diverse immigrant families
This study first seeks to determine the role of parent demographic characteristics in involvement with Head Start services. Specifically, are parent demographic characteristics -- such as birthplace, educational attainment, and language -- associated with level of involvement in Head Start services? Further, do these characteristics predict immigrant parents’ involvement? Next, this study investigates the role of parents’ satisfaction with their child’s Head Start program as directly related to their level of involvement, and does this satisfaction predict involvement? This study used a community-based participatory process. (author abstract)
