    Some children experience a virtual gap between home and school cul-tures, often resulting in difficulty with negotiating institutional rules and structures, including those that regulate play (Levinson, ). Cultural dissonance may be created from misalignment of home and school cultures and is a significant concern in play (Wood, a). Some cultures value getting things done and aren’t sticklers for rules or protocol. Others emphasize protocol above all else. If managers don’t talk .

    Many studies have documented the gap between students' home lives and school practices, and several programs are focusing on family literacy to en-hance connections between home and school by helping parents share books with their children (e.g., McCaleb, ; Morrow, ; Shanahan, Mulhern, & Rodriguez-Brown, ). Ogbu asserts that current educational discourse continues to attribute Black student underachievement primarily to school and societal factors (e.g., tracking, stereotypical teacher attitudes and beliefs, social-class inequities, and cultural differences between home and school), representing the students as “victims or marginalized people.

      In fact, substantive parental involvement in children's school learning appears to be quite rare (Smith, ). This is usually a terrible loss since parents are the most influential instructional mediators between home and school cultures. Parents need to become partners in literacy activities that fink home and school.   The cultural deficit theory states that some students do poorly in school because the linguistic, social, and cultural nature of the home environment does not prepare them for the work they will be required to do in school. As an example, some students may not have as many books read to them as are read to children in other homes.
