Hernandez Family Episode 5
Hernandez Family Episode 5 Program Transcript
FEMALE SPEAKER: They’ve missed four of their parenting classes so far.
FEMALE SPEAKER: So they haven’t completed their parenting group?
FEMALE SPEAKER: I have to call the ACS worker and let her know. They’re probably going to have to take the classes over again, and that’s going to be tough. The classes caused the father to miss overtime at work, and they really rely on that money to make ends meet.
FEMALE SPEAKER: But they have to finish the program. They’re only allowed three missed classes. There’s another problem. You know the agency’s been conducting a study of our performance. Well, it lowers our completion numbers. Lower numbers put our funding at risk. Our bosses start questioning the credibility of what we’re trying to do here.
FEMALE SPEAKER: But I can’t give the Hernandez family the post test. They won’t be able to complete it.
FEMALE SPEAKER: No, that’s not why I brought this up. The agency needs data to determine how effective these parenting classes are. The more attrition we have when parents don’t finish the program, there’s no data. No data means no support for what we’re teaching or how it might benefit other populations.
FEMALE SPEAKER: Maybe we should account for the attrition then. Maybe there’s something we can learn from it?
