Hidden Issues in Teacher-Parent Interaction: A Qualitative Study of Teachers' Handling Differences with Parents
The current research was designed to broaden our understanding of teacher-parent interaction, focusing on how teachers view interactions regarding difference with parents, and how this view affects teachers and their future handling their communication with parents. Semi-structured in-depth non-directive interviews were conducted with 25 elementary-school teachers in Israeli public schools. Findings reveal that teachers described situations in which they experienced disrespect on the part of the parents, and even fear, and these led most of them to minimize communication with these parents. Study limitations are listed, and future research possibilities are suggested.
