Dialogue and Communication between School and Home.
Bauch, Jerold P.
This paper discusses school-home dialogue: its benefits; its theoretical underpinnings (Plato, Dewey, Hegel); perspectives on parent involvement, including societal changes that seem to produce barriers to communication between homes and schools (changes in family structure and role, time/schedule problems, distance, and educational bureaucracy); and the emerging role of technology. The paper describes experimentation with telephones as a way to bridge the information gap between teachers and parents, resulting in "The Transparent School Model" which uses a school-based computer system to provide voice mail linkages between teachers and parents. The paper claims the model goes a long way toward promoting the ideal of community achieved through dialogue between homes and schools, and addresses the barriers to communication described earlier. Contains 18 references. (EV)
