This paper focuses on the school-family relationship by using the threshold concept which, unlike a border, gives recognition to a space of interconnection between the two elements. At an operational level, there are certain practices for looking at the actual relationship established between parents and teachers; these practices, thanks to their strategic positioning, can be both an access point to foster a new alliance or a pretext for new contrasts. Homework belongs to this class because it is sent out and comes back from the school place to the family home both physically and figuratively, positioning itself at the limit. Using the border perspective, the risk is that everyone sees and reads homework only on the basis of their own point of view, generating mutual closures and widening distances; by contrast, the threshold interpretation allows different actors to share an educational concern by putting at the centre the child/pupil’s right to a harmonious development.
