Building effective parent-teacher relationships

When a child has a bad day at school, it often puts teachers and parents in communication with one another. Depending on their relationship, misunderstandings can occur.

MPR News host Angela Davis spoke with two educators on how to build meaningful relationships even during the tough moments in the school year.

They spoke about what parents and teachers can do to get on the same page when it comes to overseeing the education of a child, and how they can create strong relationships.
