| At parent-teacher meetings, while teachers explain school educational policies to parents, studentsf parents inform leaders, guardians and teachers of their desires. Teachers may discuss problems in grades and classes and school educational problems, and exchange information about these problems. By staging parent-teacher meetings, mutual understanding and friendship can be promoted between teachers and the parents, and between parents.
At individual meetings, studentsf educational problems and futures are discussed individually and mutual understanding is built. For example, home-room teachers explain specifically about individual student achievements and help to facilitate efforts by the schools to respond to the desires of children and their parents.
