“school teachers have to communicate with parents about their students’activities and achievements, families also need to inform school about students’ progress” (Raccah &Elyashiv, 2008). It is my goal when I communicate with parents, to goes beyond sharing information about students performance. I hope to foster a relationship in which information is shared on how to better enhance students achievements within the classrooms and outside of the classroom. When trying to establish effective parent teachers relationship, I hope to be able to discuss my students strengths and weaknesses openly, share vital information about curriculum in which the concepts are shared with hope that parents will reinforce the skills in the home. It is my goal that my parents feel welcomed within my classroom.
The educator maybe tutoring students, attending committee meetings or coaching an extra-curricular activity for the school. Other members of the school community may help with fundraising for the school, by raising money for the school to purchase new books, computers, etc. The administration will show its loyalty to the school by keeping classroom fair in regards to student volume. Class sizes stresses out an educator, the amount of students that are in the class, the amount of special education students in the class and the behavioral aspects of the students have a lot to do with how the school looks at the loyalty of the administrator.

One of the opportunities we can provide for those children is school choice. Some people argue that they pay high tax to provide quality education for their children, and others do not have the right to share with it. If we follow the system thinking, this belief is a fallacy because we can not separate one from others in a system. In the long run, school choice can create success for children from the low SES family. In other words, if we can help those children succeed in the school and society, they will produce less problems to the society, and we can build up a better environment for everyone.

It will segregate the classes even more than they are today because in order for a voucher to be helpful to a family, they must have a substantial amount of money to begin with, resulting in a stratified society. Primarily however, school vouchers are a violation of the national constitution and most state constitutions. Of course there are those who strongly support school vouchers. In many cases, the middle class is drawn to the idea because for a small amount of more money annually, one's child may attend an institution of choice for the opportunity to receive a higher level of education in a private school.

Next year at the beginning of school, I will try to communicate with parents by offering times when they can have free time to talk to me about school expectations and any other instances that they can help their student and home.
