A trend in education for the past sixty years has been the gradual development of a variety of procedures involving parents in the education of children. Research that indicates the interdependence of the home and the school in educating children has been the major influence in the development of these programs. Today there is general agreement among educators that the home and school must work cooperatively to resolve children's educational problems. Many successful procedures are now being used which involve parents, but more effective ways of working with them are being sought. In this paper group procedures are being considered as methods which include parents in the resolution of these problems.
