Stringer, Patricia; Hourani, Rida Blaik
Educational Research for Policy and Practice, v12 n2 p149-174 Jun 2013
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE) is in the process of initiating major education reform designed to improve schools. Parental involvement in support of student learning ranks high on the reform agenda. This study explores managerial aspects of implementing home-school relationships in seven primary Public Private Partnership (PPP) schools in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Participants involved in this study were principals, social workers, teachers, parents, and students. Managerial aspects discussed in this paper relate to: (a) benefits of home-school relationships; (b) roles and responsibilities of stakeholders; (c) home-school communication; and (d) constraints and challenges faced in the management of home-school relationships. The findings elicit recommendations for improvement which may inform the work of policymakers, principals, social workers, teachers and parents in their continued efforts to build home-school relationships.
