School Readiness & Parental Involvement among Latina/o Children

Speaker Information: Sarai Coba-Rodriguez 

We'd like to extend a warm invitation to our second seminar of the semester. The seminar entitled: School Readiness & Parental Involvement among Latina/o Children will feature a presentation by Sarai Coba-R., a doctoral student in Human Development & Family Studies. She will be talking about her dissertation research.    In her presentation, Sarai will discuss how Latino/a parents conceptualize the meaning of school readiness and how they view their role in facilitating their child’s early care and education. Using a family resiliency framework, the goal of this presentation is to examine the meaning of school readiness, expectations for school readiness, and related parent involvement among Latino/a families.    Light refreshments will be provided.   

This seminar is part of our Graduate College Focal Point initiative entitled: Examining the Educational Experiences of Latinos in the U.S. This event is free and open to the public. A copy of the presentation can be found on our website. For more information on this event and our focal point initiatives please visit: http://publish.illinois.edu/latinoeducationintheusa/
