Family Communications With Schools and the Community.
The family, responsible for the well being of children, has felt alienated from the schools. One of the reasons has been its inability to communicate personal and social needs to the schools, and the schools' inability to clarify what is expected from parents. Parents and the family unit need to be helped to understand the schools' role in the life of the child. There are several factors affecting this communication process within the family, between the family and the school, and the family and the community: (1) the response of parents to children as students; (2) the role of the teacher; (3) the inclusionary/ exclusionary practices of the school; (4) the role of television. As families learn to cope with these factors, communication will be enriched and alienation and negative attitudes will be mitigated. (Author/WI)
