School and Community discusses a research project that surveys the role of the school in the community as seen by students and their parents and community agencies. It identifies several factors that influence the conceptions and attitudes of students and parents towards education and in particular, the efficacy of contact and communication between schools and parents. This book begins by describing the two schools that participated in the survey and identifying the survey methods that were carried out to collect information. After presenting data on parents' occupations and work ambitions of the students, it discusses the implications of contact and communication between parents and school. Finally, this book investigates the views of community agencies concerning the schools' interaction with them. Teachers who are confronted with problems of communication with parents and community agencies will find this text useful.
