Significant progress has been made during the biennium 1926-1928 in the parent education movement, which is one of the developing phases of adult education. This progress is due principally to the efforts of parents and their groups and to many national, State, and local public and private agencies. In several States, scattered and isolated efforts were brought together and, where previously projects were carried on ineffectively, good teamwork was established with favorable results. In spite of all difficulties and although progress may be slow, the cooperation of home and school is steadily advancing. It engages more and more people and methods are being improved. When these methods, adjusted to meet the needs of each country, shall have been centralized by a strong organization directing them definitely toward the same end, it will be possible to fully realize this community of action between parents and teachers. Topics covered in the report include (1) Governmental activities; (2) State activities; (3) Private agencies promoting programs of parent education (4) National Congress of Parents and Teachers; (5) Organizations in large cities; (6) Periodicals for parents; (7) International Federation of Home and School; and (8) Results of inquiry into world cooperation of home and school.
