Abstract (Summary)

Educational attainment has increased throughout the United States in recent years. However, Latinos trail behind other ethnicities in academic achievement and higher education attainment. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the needs and barriers of Latino parent involvement as they relate to students' academic achievement. Shaped through the literature review, a program was designed in which goals and objectives were set in order to assist Latino parents increase their involvement in student's educational planning. The purpose of this project was to design a Latino parenting program that would contribute to students academic achievement, to identify potential funding sources, and complete a grant proposal to fund the program at a middle school in Southern California whose population reflects predominately low income Latino students. The actual funding and/or submission of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this academic project.
