Teachers, Parents, and the School: A Collection of Essays.
The four essays in this collection provide guidelines for parents and teachers in educating children. The first essay, "Parents, the Pupil, and the School Curriculum," describes selected ways parents may help pupils to achieve in the school curriculum. "Objectives of the School, the Pupil, and Parents" discusses the need for teachers to plan educational objectives that include problem-solving skills, creative thinking, critical thinking, and the ability to get along well with others as well as to understand the subject matter. "Parent-Teacher Conferences and the Child" focuses on what questions parents might wish to ask about their child in a parent-teacher conference. The final essay, "Report Cards, the Student, and Parents," discusses the different possible interpretations of grades, the advantages and disadvantages to schools of issuing report cards, and the benefits of using parent-teacher conferences instead of report cards.
