Abstract: There is an ever-growing realisation that parents should contribute positively to the education of their children, and this requires connecting families and schools or forming a collaborative team of members from the home and the school environment for the benefit of the children. School authorities must give back more of the parents' traditional function as active participators in the socialisation of the young. On the other hand, parents must not abdicate any of their duties and are required to indulge in honest dedication for their children's sake. In view, therefore, of the fact that the educational welfare of the pupil should come tirst, caring for the child requires a two-way communication system between parents and school, meaning that authorities must provide a current and relevant means of communication between the home and the school environment. To make this possible every educational institution must become a more technological and information-based community, and cyberspace is providing the means for all this by creating an electronic community for education.
