Role of Language Status in Predicting Parent School Engagement and School Relationships
The present study explores how parents of English Language Learners (ELs) rate child’s school climate and engagement in school. Parents of 16,936 students, grades PreK-12, completed the Delaware School Survey- Home Edition, which included items assessing their child’s primary language and language abilities. Although effect sizes were minimal, language ability was found to be related to several aspects of school climate and engagement.
