    I think parents are finally waking up to this. I hope so anyway.

    I have to say with my experience with the public schools around here (I have 4 children) That they want your cooperation only if they see a behavior problem; however, if you see a teaching discrepancy or a conflict of interest than you are a trouble maker and someone they dont want to deal with.

    This is the primary problem with schools they want to tell the parents what they are doing wrong, how pathetic they are at raising the children, and how the schools have to pick up the slack. Heaven forbid you point out a problem with their educational technique. I think a lot of educators forget that they are not the only ones who attended college, and some of us have a higher than 6th grade education..

    Just my 2 cents worth sorry if it sounds like a rant.... :blah2:
