Educators are becoming aware that between the school, government and the home is an important link, which must be utilized or harnessed for children's learning and educational development. The situation of teaching and learning in most public schools in Nigeria shows that there is a considerable difference in the level of involvement of the Government, School and Home in the child's educational development. In this study we found that the home is under-utilized in the business of educating the child in school. The paper argues that irrespective of the level of education and expertise of the parents, they have a lot to contribute to education of their ward. Efforts should be made to introduce parental education programme, as a way of giving parents the needed skills required for effective performance of the new roles being advocated for them in teaching and learning delivery in schools.
