A Study to Determine the Needs for the Parent-Teacher Conference Program at Porcupine School on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
Whirlwind Horse, Anthony
The purpose of this study was (1) to survey the use of parent-teacher conferences in selected elementary schools on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, and (2) to develop techniques for the teacher to follow so that the conferences will be successful. A telephone call was made to the principals requesting assistance in arranging personal interviews with teachers, parents, students, and the principal of each school. Teachers and students were selected for the interview according to availability. Parents were chosen by random sampling. Using a list provided by the school, every third parent was interviewed. The interviews were conducted on a 1 to 1 basis. Ways of improving the parent conference were through in-service training sessions for everyone involved. The elementary school principal has a major role in helping teachers to make parent-teacher conferences successful. The principal and the classroom teacher have to make a cooperative effort if parent-teacher conferences are to accomplish anything. (FF)
