Socioeconomic Status and Its Effect on Teacher/Parental Communication in Schools
Ankrum, Raymond J.
Journal of Education and Learning, v5 n1 p167-175 2016
The power of communication and community engagement utilized by teachers to actively involve parents and guardians in the educational process of their children is essential to the growth of the students. An important component to student motivation is a teacher's ability to leverage parental/guardian relationships. A teacher's ability to form partnerships with parents to help motivate student achievement is an unmeasurable intangible. Teacher interactions with parents/guardians can make or break the student's relationships with the teachers. Teachers should think of parents as thought-partners in providing rigorous, meaningful education to students. Parents should think of teachers as extended family to students. The partnership between parent and teacher should bridge the gap in the child's education. Extraneous factors such as the Socio-economic status of families should never play a role in how teachers communicate with parents.
