Abstract

This research aimed to determine the methods of strengthening the relationship between the family and the school in order to strengthen the students' personality and their achievement. This study used a descriptive methodology. The study population comprised of 60 educators in three specific schools in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor zones, and the guardians of 147 understudies selected in the school. Guardians and educators were solicited to demonstrate the viable regions from association inside each of the 6 parental contribution classes: child rearing “parenting”, conveying “communication”, volunteering, learning at home, and basic leadership “decision making, and teaming up with the group “collaboration” the significance of organization, and the boundaries confronting viable organization. The research reached a number of important results, including that the present reality of partnership in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor is relatively low. However, the parent and school both share similar perceptions as regards the importance of partnership. There was a common agreement by both parent and school that parent involvement can help teachers be more effective with over 70% of both parties agreeing. In most school within Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, the tight time parameter is a major factor limiting the communication and collaboration with family. This was a major barrier considered by the school as hindering effective partnership. Most parents were of the perception that the location or residence of some of the children could also act as a limiting factor observed from the data analyzed, that there are differences between the perception of parent and school according to their geographical location and school type.
