Failure to Communicate

"What we have here is a failure to communicate!" If you don't recognize the quote, it's from a movie called Cool Hand Luke.

When schools talk about "communication" with parents, it's a one-way street. For example, look at Andrea Schindler's letter to parents:

Research has proven that students are more successful when there is a strong parent--teacher communication system in place. In order to communicate regularly, your child will come home every Friday with a Weekly Report ... Please read the report and return the bottom portion, signed, on the following Monday.
