This paper studies the advantages and reasons hindering communication between teachers and parents. Two hundred and twenty-two teachers and thirty-three primary school principals consider communication with parents important, because this communication creates a sense of security in students, improving their learning skills and conduct. Teachers consider that effective communication between teachers and parents benefits the school unit itself, contributing to its efficiency. The reasons hindering communication with parents mentioned by teachers include parents’ lack of time to visit the school unit, parents’ low social or education background, their children’s poor performance or conduct. Teachers disagree that the education system structure constitutes a problem in their communication with parents, stressing that many parents do not understand the importance of their communication with the school unit attended by their children. Finally, teachers consider guidance plays an important part, as it helps mitigate the problems hindering efficient communication between teachers and parents.
