FERRAROTTO, Luana  and  MALAVASI, Maria Marcia Sigrist. The family-school relation as aim of current educational policies: a necessary discussion. Educ. Teoria Prática [online]. 2016, vol.26, n.52, pp.232-246. ISSN 1981-8106.

This paper discusses the family-school relationship as a target of the current educational policies, using as methodology, literature in this the area. Analyzing both the National Plan for Education and the All for Education Commitment, it is clear to notice that the family-school relationship is a "one-way" element since it is assigned to families only the task of monitoring the school activities and homework assignments. In this context, the concept of educational quality is linked, strictly, to the results of external evaluations, and parents are invited to participate, including expecting them to suggest improvements to schools without the necessary analysis of the conditions and institutional reality. It is known that the speech about the approach between family and school is defended by educators, however, it must be recognized that such speech was reframed by the current policies and is far from the complicity between school-family anchored on trust and solidarity sharing of the functions with established for the good of the school community.
