The parent skilling process for informed input into the school learning environment
The issue of community involvement in schools is of significance to all educational stakeholders. It is by its very nature, a contentious issue which has the potential to impact upon all areas of the schooling process. In response to an evident need to investigate the changing parent/school relationship, a study was designed to examine parents' informed input into the classroom and the processes appropriate for these developments. As a result of participating in the study, a community of learners emerged, bound by a commonality of interests, goals and beliefs. This was an important outcome of the research, as it provides a basis from which to assist both teachers and parents in adjusting to and accommodating these roles in the developing school/community partnership.
