Abstract: This qualitative study of Hmongs in one Midwestern urban school district investigates the nature of home-school relations from the perspective of Hmong parents and educational professionals. The study incorporates par¬ent and staff surveys, in-depth interviews and some observations conducted at two elementary schools. It reflects the voices of Hmong parents and school personnel (teachers, administrators, and para-professionals) as they share their cultural orientations to teaching and learning. The findings indicate that there is a strong desire for Hmong families to maintain their cultural heritage and identity while acculturating into mainstream schools. Education is highly valued and parents support their children’s schools, but participation in school activities is difficult for many Hmong parents.
