ABSTRACT
The article explores the possibilities of adopting parent-teacher partnership in the educational system in the U.S. True cooperation involves warm feelings, wanting to share experiences and ideas. It is based upon mutual respect, trust, and confidence nourished by not just one casual contact, but by many shared school and home experiences where each is felt welcome and where each, supporting and supplementing the guidance of the other is truly a partner in helping develop the infinite potentialities of childhood. However, a realistic viewpoint would indicate that there will be undoubtedly be cases wherein all the "do's" and "don'ts" in human relationships will not seem to work. Thus, home-school partnership is possible only if parents and teachers share a common concern, and a mutual respect for each others' contributions in the educative process of the children.
