    THIS DIGEST WAS CREATED BY ERIC, THE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES INFORMATION CENTER. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ERIC, CONTACT ACCESS ERIC 1-800-LET-ERIC Researchers and educators have long agreed that when parents get involved in education, children try harder and achieve more at school (e.g., Epstein, 1995). Parents who help and encourage their children to learn at home, and who help develop positive attitudes toward school, contribute to the personal growth and academic success of their children. Various approaches have been developed to help schools gain greater parent involvement. These approaches have several features in common: programs that focus on parenting skills and the development of home conditions that support learning; school-to-home and home-to-school communication about school programs and children's progress; the use of volunteers at school or in other locations to support the school and students; and participation by families in decision-making, governance, and advocacy (Bauch, 1994; Davies, 1991).

    Auburn, Alabama Extension educators and their community collaborators are increasingly being held accountable for results. They need to know how to evaluate their programs and effectively communicate results to stakeholders. This article reports the design and results of a statewide training in parent education evaluation in Montana, using the National Extension Parent Education Model (NEPEM). It provides a useful example of how evaluation training can be conceived, carried out, and evaluated by Extension professionals. The National Extension Parent Education Model (NEPEM) and The Alabama Children's Trust Fund Evaluation Manual In 1992, a team of specialists in the Cooperative Extension System noted that a national parent education model that pulled together critical parenting practices did not exist. In collaboration with family life specialists throughout the nation, the team reached agreement on a model summarizing core categories and the critical parenting practices emerging from them.

      [] Advocating for Culturally Congruent School Reform
      This article discusses school reform from a cultural perspective. It speculates that a primary reason why Indian students continue to suffer higher dropout rates and lower achievement is because a "dissonance" exists between American Indian culture and the culture of our public schools system. It suggests that certain kinds of teaching methods and school reform strategies are more "culturally congruent" with traditional tribal teaching practices and therefore should be considered for adoption among public schools serving Indian student populations.
