Organizing Parent-Teacher Relations Around the Work of Teaching.
Ogawa, Rodney T.
Peabody Journal of Education, v73 n1 p6-14 1998
Examines the relationships between teachers and parents with respect to teaching, suggesting that classic and contemporary organizational theory can help predict key tensions and issues likely to emerge. Discusses bridging strategies used by schools to manage parent relations, and examines schools' use of buffering strategies to shield teachers from undue parental influence. A more balanced view is recommended. (SM)
