Abstract

The purpose of this study was to generate recommendations for improving communication between home and school regarding the homework assigned in mainstream classes. specifically, the objectives of the study were to identify recommendations for ameliorating homework-communication problems between (a) parents and classroom teachers, (8) parents and special education teachers, and (c) classroom teachers and special education teachers. subjects for this study were 8 parents of students with mild disabilities, 13 special education teachefs of students with mild disabilities, and 11 classroom teachers who taught students with mild disabilities in their classes. six focus groups were used to generate recommendations. many recommendations for solving homework-communication problems were identified by parents, classroom teachers, and special education teachers. five themes emerged from these recommendations: time and opportunity; knowledge; attitudes and abilities; bypass; and other. these results, as well as limitations of the study and future research needs are discussed.
