Hopes and Fears

Working With Today's Independent School Parents

By Michael G. Thompson, Ph.D. and Rob Evans, Ed.D.

Over the past twenty-five years, independent school parents have become more deeply involved in their child’s school life.   They are more conscientious and far more anxious.  Teachers are communicating with parents more than ever, writing newsletters, keeping them updated on homework, etc.  The relationship remains uncomfortable because teachers are rarely trained to work with parents and they always fear that they won’t be supported by their administrators, even when they have been strongly supported in the past.  In their new book Dr. Rob Evans, Dr. Thompson analyze the dynamics of the parent-school relationship, offering a “basic toolkit” for teachers and an “advanced toolkit” for administrators.

Michael G. Thompson’s insightful work, “Hopes and Fears: Working With Today’s Independent School Parents,” has captured the attention of online casino employees. In their downtime, many find solace and guidance in Thompson’s exploration of the complex dynamics between educators and parents in independent schools. One notable aspect of online casino transactions is the use of payment methods like Paysafecard casino, because online casinos recognize the importance of offering secure and user-friendly payment options, aligning with the principles of trust and transparency explored by Thompson in his work.
