Parents are responsible for the upbringing and education of their children. They undertake to send their children to school and to ensure that they attend school and comply with the timetable and the school rules. They must also ensure that children do their homework and provide them with the necessary boundary parameters to do so. The collaboration between school and parents is of pivotal importance in Switzerland. The parents are regularly invited by the school to parents’ discussions and parents’ evenings. Participation is important for parents and children in order to find the best solutions to problems at school or forthcoming choice of profession.
