Teacher-Parent Interactions in Taiwan: A Qualitative Investigation of Teachers' Perspectives
Wu, Pi-Ju
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v3 n5 p307-316 2015
Because the importance of parental involvement in education has been emphasized recently in Taiwan, the nature of teacher-parent interactions has changed. The current study describes teacher-parent interactions from teacher perspectives in grades 1-12 in Taiwan. Data were collected from 50 teachers using open-ended questionnaires. Thematic analysis was used to analyze the data. Nine themes regarding the experiences of teachers in their interactions with parents were identified, namely, initiative of interaction, cause of interaction, parental role, consideration before action, social network, action strategy, outcome of interaction, reflection on interaction, and suggestion for preservice teachers. Four important issues related to teacher-parent interactions are discussed further.
