November 2008
New Zealand Principals' Federation Magazine;2008, p18
The article provides information on the impact of the lack of partnership and support between home and school towards students in New Zealand. The author states that the lack of support include direct refusal to give permission for Resource Teachers Learning and Behavior (RTLB) referral and low levels of commitment. In addition, the major barrier to learning and teaching in schools is the student behavior, where there is lack of partnership between home and school. The author emphasizes that school leaders must make the notion of equal partnership a priority on the educational agenda.
