There is a bill, not in the New Jersey legislature, but in Mississippi’s legislature, that would require their teachers to grade the students’ parents on their involvement in the students’ education. It sounds pretty far-fetched, but at the same time, it sounds like something that would be proposed in New Jersey.

The Mississippi bill would require that report cards include a section that teachers would fill out grading the parents on their communication with the teacher, the student’s preparedness for tests, completion of homework, and how often they are late or miss school. Lest you think this is so outrageous that it could never happen, it has passed Mississippi’s House of Representatives.
