Gone are the days where in parents hold on to old traditions/beliefs that teacher alone is responsible to the education of their pupils. The 21st Century Education calls for more serious partnership of parents and teachers to improve the teaching-learning condition in school. It has been proven that our children are being trained at home and further enhancements are being done in school. This practice proves the active involvement of both parents and teachers to improve the education of their children.
The present programs of the Department of Education like PTA (Parent Teacher Association) prove the need of parent-teacher partnership in Education. Thru this program, parents were given opportunities to understand their roles in school and their importance in the education of their children. They also cooperate in the school programs and projects. Strengthening this partnership will lead to the improvement of effective learning in school.
