Teachers' Perceptions toward Home-School Collaboration: A Comparison between Homeroom Teachers and Special-Area Teachers
Dor, Asnat
Education and Society, v29 n2-3 p39-55 2011
This study sought to compare the attitudes of Israeli homeroom and special-area teachers' toward home-school collaboration. The issues examined were general attitudes, level of commitment, and actual initiation of such collaboration. Data were collected from 110 elementary and secondary-school teachers who live in a northern town in Israel. Findings showed that homeroom and special-area teachers from elementary and secondary schools expressed relatively positive attitudes toward homeschool collaboration. Special-area secondary teachers expressed more positive attitudes and a higher level of commitment. However, a higher level of actual initiation of home-school collaboration was reported by homeroom teachers in both age levels. The implications of the findings are discussed.
