With the National PTA’s Standard for School-Family-Community Partnership as a framework, this guide offers advice for resolving common points of contention between parents and teachers, such as the most productive use of a parent–teacher conference, the best at-home environment for doing homework, the helpfulness of parental rewards for classroom performance, and a teacher’s role in supporting a student with an at-home crisis. This solution manual draws from real-world experiences of parents, teachers, and administrators to tackle issues of communication, parenting skills, classroom volunteering, and mutual respect.


"This helpful manual provides tips to guide teachers through the complexities of working with parents." —MSTA’s Class Notes
