  6. TEACHER TRAINING Teachers are rarely trained to support effective parental engagement in learning (Willemse, Vloeberghs et al. 2016, Willemse, de Bru ne et al. 2017, Willemse, Thompson et al. 2018, Goodall, Ramadan et al. 2021) Teachers may discourage or discount the support parents are able to offer, due to assumptions on the basis of background, SES, ethnicity (Berkowitz et al., 2017) Teachers may also not recognise the support parents give to students (Hamlin & Flessa, 2018) This Photo by Unknown Author is licensed under CC BY-SA
