Abstract

We investigated the partnership of parents, educators, and principals in creating a culture of teaching and learning in schools. To this end, a Culture of Learning and Teaching Partnership Scale (COLTPS) and Factors Contributing to the Decline of a Culture of Learning and Teaching Scale (FCDCOLTS) were used. The findings indicated that parents, educators, and principals, as a group, differed significantly in the extent to which they perceived the partnership role they play in creating a culture of teaching and learning in schools. The findings also indicated that parents, educators, and principals, as a group, differed significantly in the extent to which they perceived the factors that contribute to the decline of a culture of teaching and learning in schools. The findings indicated further that the nature of a stakeholder had a significant influence on parents', educators', and principals' perceptions of the partnership role they play in creating a culture of teaching and learning in schools. Suggestions are made for measures to improve a culture of teaching and learning in schools.
