“Nevertheless, no school can work well for children if parents and teachers do not act in partnership on behalf of the children's best interests. Parents have every right to understand what is happening to their children at school, and teachers have the responsibility to share that information without prejudicial judgment.... Such communication, which can only be in a child's interest, is not possible without mutual trust between parent and teacher” (Dorothy H. Cohen)Following these simple but important words, this course wants to introduce participants, in the relationship between the parents and the teachers in nowadays life: it offers some methods, techniques and strategies to get in touch and work with families.This course is the result of previous projects (LLP) in Europe.
