The philosophy behind this blog
Developing good relationships is not an easy task especially in the context of the school environment. Parents are keenly interested in supporting their children as they grow and develop life skills. Emotionally charged, parents naturally support their child in finding the best possible resources.
Teachers want the best for all of their students and must maintain a global approach to educating all their students. In the day to day operations of a school, these two factors can conflict. Parents as Partners is a forum for parents and educators to discuss issues related to parents and schools. You can join in the conversation by commenting to the posts or articles. Please feel free to comment and suggest topics for this discussion forum.
