    Abstract

    Governments and education authorities often promote the development of partnerships between schools and parents or other carers. There is some evidence that such partnerships benefit children academically, emotionally and behaviourally. Teachers' skills in communicating with parents are central to such partnerships, but little addressed in pre-service and in-service teacher education. This chapter outlines some promising ways forward.
