The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Involving Parents in Head Start.

Leik, Robert K. and Mary Anne Chalkley.

The Head Start Program, which began in the 1960s, by 1989 had become a successful national attempt to overcome some of the educational disadvantages faced by children of poverty. Head start program goals have always included involving parents in the program. This 1989 CURA-funded study was planned specifically to test whether particular kinds of parent-child interaction in the context of Head Start have any favorable impact.
