Parents and Teachers: Talking with or Past One Another--Or Not Talking at All?
Risko, Victoria J.; Walker-Dalhouse, Doris
Reading Teacher, v62 n5 p442-444 Feb 2009
Parent and family involvement in schools can have a positive influence on students' school achievement. When parents feel good about their school involvement and the school's instructional efforts, they tend to hold high expectations for their children, which in turn can have a positive impact on their children's interests, aspirations, and learning--and on teachers' morale and self-confidence. These positive outcomes are associated with parents and teachers forming partnerships that are respectful of one another's perspectives.
