Involving Asian Families in Learning

Description

Case studies from Croydon, Derby and Rochdale demonstrate the importance of developing responsive, culturally sensitive learning opportunities in consultation with the local community.

The role of parents and carers in developing children's literacy, numeracy and language skills is well established. However, there are some specific barriers which can impact upon the involvement of Asian families in their children's learning, putting the children at a disadvantage.

In later life these barriers can impact on examination achievements. It is therefore important to break this cycle of disadvantage by enabling Pakistani and Bangladeshi parents and carers to become involved, and more active, in supporting language and literacy activities.
