Parents: The Biggest Problem in Education

A former school administrator takes a swing at what she considers the biggest problem in education.  Namely, parents.

It seems parents are of two stripes: those who ignore their progeny’s education altogether, and those whose participation consists of defending bad performance and bad behavior and aggressively attacking the teacher for daring to point them out.

From a CNN article:

‘We are educators, not nannies. We are educated professionals  who work with kids every day and often see your child in a different light.

She pleas, “if you really want to help your children be successful, stop making excuses for them!” “Parents,” she says, “be a partner instead of a prosecutor.

What she says makes sense. So, parents, if your school-aged kid has problems at school, consider the wisdom from Pogo Possum, “We have met the enemy, and he is US!”
