The Qridi education program, created in Finland, is a tool for promoting teacher cooperation with school parents that saves teachers’ time in communicating with their parents. The program is based on a teacher’s planned and supervised training process, through regular school evaluations, students’ self-assessments, and learning to observe the work of another classmate, which is also available to parents, and through continued training at home, parents can continue the school teaching process.
