According to Henderson, Mapp, Johnson, & Davies (2007) the primary responsibility for establishing partnerships between school and home sits squarely on the shoulders of the school. To be more specific, the authors suggested principals and teachers are the catalyst for building strong partnerships. Henderson, et. al (2007) stated as part of their four core belief strategy that school house leadership has to work in tandem to create an atmosphere which seeks partnership with parents. The writers professed that the principal’s role is key, but that teachers must become advocates for parental engagement.
