Impact On Mother’s Survey
In 2003, a group of graduate students from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas conducted a survey of 100 parents in the AVANCE San Antonio Chapter who had graduated from the Parent-Child Education Program in the previous 10 years.
The intent of the survey was to document the difference between the economic and educational conditions of the parents at entry to the program and after graduation from the program.
The following is a summary of the findings:
Status/Condition of Program Participants
|At Enrollment||At Survey Time|
|High School Graduation Rate||12%||47%|
|Public Assistance – two or more benefits||68%||46%|
|Public Assistance – one benefit||32%||54%|
|Attending an Institution of Higher Learning||7%||31%|
Annual Income has increased 73%!
