    Is Parental Involvement Overrated?

    in Education

    In a groundbreaking new study - The Broken Compass: Parental Involvement with Children's Education, Dr. Angel Harris and Dr. Keith Robinson have discovered that parental involvement, at least the way it is currently envisioned, doesn't quite work the way we think it does to ensure students' academic success.

    They will talk to us about their research, what it means for the future of parent engagement, what schools should focus on instead, and what parents can and should do to support their children.

    Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates education equity plans and promotes equity in education in compliance with federal law.

    Is Children's Education Related to Parental Involvement with School?

    in Parents

    Today's guests, Drs. Angel Harris and Keith Robinson will discuss their book "The Broken Compass: Parental Involvement with Children's Education." Many of their research findings turn our traditional beliefs about a child's school achievement and its relationship to parental involvement with school on its head.

    Angel Harris is a Professor of Sociology at Duke University. His research interests include social inequality, policy, and education. My work focuses on the social psychological determinants of the racial achievement gap. Specifically, I examine the factors that contribute to differences in academic investment among African Americans, Latino/as, Asian Americans, and Whites. I also study the impact that adolescents' perceptions of opportunities for upward socio-economic mobility have for their academic investment, and the long-term effects of youths' occupational aspirations both within the United States and Europe.

    Keith Robinson is An Assistant Professor of Sociology at The University of Texas at Austin. His research focuses on the determinants and implications of test score (achievement) inequality in K-12 education.  Dr. Robinson's work highlights the extent to which family and school factors contribute to achievement inequality, and suggests ways to equalize these differences. Much can be learned by examining the various stages of K-12 education since the determinants of achievement disparities change as children progress through schooling.

    More Than Just A Good Idea: Education Research to Guide Product Development

    More than Just a Good Idea: Education Research Guide to Product Development

    Ideas abound for new teaching methodologies, and curriculum, and each claims to be innovative and effective. Governments throughout the world fund a wealth of research into educational strategies and instructional design every year, yet we find that these communities often don’t communicate well with each other. It is not unusual for popular educational solutions to lack research into their effectiveness and how best they can be applied. Equally unusual, many educational research programs, in which curriculum is developed, never see the commercial light of day, or broad distribution.

    We will examine what educational research brings to improving products today and in the future and how publishers can take advantage of research findings to improve their offerings. 

    Host Michael Jay and our leading education thinkers will contemplate the following:

    How closely tied is today’s research programs to educational practice?
    Where are there challenges for the research community in working with commercial vendors?
    How are requirements at funding agencies changing to bring these communities closer together?
    How are our universities and research institutions working to accommodate the commercialization of products from their research?
    How can publishers reach out to the research community to improve their offerings and gain greater credibility with the educational community?
