Abstract

This chapter describes the findings of a study that used a qualitative approach to explore how three Black single parents experienced involvement from their own parents during their K-12 years.

This study is guided by the following questions: "What were the messages that these low-SES Black women received about the value of education?” and “How were these women encouraged and to what end?"
