    It's a bad idea. It's a massive overreach of the government and an intrusion into the home. How involved or uninvolved we are with our children's education is none of their business.

    i have to love the party of 'small government'. :rofl:

    that said, i think encouraging parents to partner with teachers to help their kids isn't a bad idea.

    but grading them is a bit kooky.

    I've longed maintained that social conservatives are just socialists with a different agenda.

    I think the idea of grading parents is great, but it would have no impact. Nor would it have any reflection of a child's grades. So my answer is no.

    Can we grade teachers, principals and schools too? I have been for that for years and years and years.

    I think it's great to see stupidity crossing party lines.

    Stupid idea and a waste of taxpayer money, it's a bullshit, manipulative way to try and get parents more involved. What happens if the parents get a failing grade? ..... :lol:

    Don't pay attention to it. The Republican teacher only wanted her name in the paper. We know Republicans don't care for education so when one pretends they do, it makes "news".
