Abstract

Based on available records of 35,057 preschool-aged children enrolled in the Illinois Prekindergarten Program during FY 1994-1995, this study examined the association between demographic factors and families' involvement in their children's education. Results indicated that poor parents, single parents, and parents who primarily spoke a non-English language at home participated significantly less in most of the involvement opportunities available. Implications for practice and further research are discussed.
