From the Paper:

"In recent years a call for more parental participation in schooling is a mere recognition of the need for collaboration in school. Educators and parents are acknowledging the importance of collaboration between family and school. They are also recognizing the importance of "continuity of educational roles, values and experiences between family and school, as well as on schools and teachers" expectations about learning "preconditions developed in the home" (Carvalho, 2001: 9). It is vital the rationale and implications of family and school interactions be examined to help decide how family school "partnerships" may benefit students, teachers and families alike (Carvalho, 2001: 9). While traditionally educators have recognized the need for parental involvement and collaboration, little has been done to strengthen these partnerships and promote then in school community."
