The Parent Teacher conference forms a distinct part of operating in an educational institution. It generally registers an impact on the parents, teachers and also the students.But there is a difference of opinion among many regarding the significance of such a meeting as this majority argues that only the ‘good’ student’s parents participate.They further argue that parents who require some academic guidelines for their students as they are slacking are not made confortable enough to attend it.
This scenario should be the other way round. Students who need greater care should be handled with care and responsibility. The conference should not be looked at as the way that could reform the children but as the by which a contact can be established between both the concerned parties regarding the difficulties and progress of the child. These meetings can thus boost a healthy relationship that eventually benefits the students of a particular class.
The pros and cons regarding the students could be put into day to day analysis. The student thus gets a step by step easy way of following guidelines and performing better in his/her studies. The final results of this is surely felt in the grade card. The meetings if required could be held once a month as per the progress report of the student. These conferences pave the way for a healthy growth of child in school.
