Providing Culturally Sensitive Parent Education Programs

Programs geared towards educating parents on particular issues relevant to their children's development and schooling.

Problems with these programs often stem from the fact that many of these programs tend to be based on 'deficit approaches', rather than recognizing, valuing, and building on the families' strengths. This chapter (chapter 6) gives strategies for providing parent education programs that reflect these values and strengths.
