MINISTARY OF NATIONAL EDUCATION SCHOOL FAMILY STUDENT TEACHER
The most important goal of education is to grow up children as good people and good citizens. Factors such as school, family, environment and teacher take crucial roles in education of children. While in the childhood phase of an individual life, the family was responsible at the first degree in education, social changes which appeared under the influence of scientific and technological improvements have caused the families to share their responsibilities with other institutions such as schools.
The function of schools and the other institutions in education has supportive and supplementary characteristic for the function of family because love, trust, morale, warm family environment which are necessary during the upbringing period cannot be transmitted by any other institutions as much as family (Çelik, 2005).
The results of several studies in the field of educational sciences indicate the cricial impact of school-family cooperation (Çelenk, 2003; Gümüşeli, 2004). Family relations and cooperation with school, their participation in school activities and their support are the essential issues which are concerned all around the world (Şişman, 2002).
There is an increasing interest among families to play active roles at schools as a result of recognition of families’ importance in education.
To establish a strong school-family cooperation, true transmission of information related to students is compulsory. As a result, families need to know their off sibling well and they should be knowledgeable of their children’s interest and behaviors (Aslanargun, 2007).
The schools which have succeed in participating family members in education, adopt the understanding of cooperation in all aspects of children’s education rather than the traditional view of simple signing actions and interaction between just family and teacher. These schools cooperate not only for activities inside schools but also activities outside schools.
To establish cooperation there is no perfect method suitable for all of the schools, students or communities. Education and in-service training are wonderful investments. Communication is the basis of effective cooperation. Flexibility and variety should be taken into consideration. For school-family cooperation external sources can be beneficial in terms of financial aids and educational support.
For successful communication, continuous effort is crucial. In cooperation projects, multi-indicators and effects of cooperation are regularly assessed.
