Homework: The Human Relations Bridge between School and Home.
Foyle, Harvey C.; Bailey, Gerald D.
The concept of parent involvement in the school curriculum has been evolving over a period of years. As schools become more sophisticated in the education of children, they must become correspondingly more sophisticated in working with the parents of the children. A High-Active Parent Invovlement Program involves administrators, teachers, parents, and students. One part of that program is the daily "public relations package" known as homework. Homework is a human bridge between the possibilities of the school and the realities of the home. This paper presents strategies through which administrators and teachers can use homework as a public relations tool to obtain greater parental involvement, that will in turn lead to greater student achievement and positive attitudes toward the school and the teacher. Appendixes include a parent involvement continuum and a checklist for parents. (CB)
