    That's certainly part of the problem.

    That is also, incidently, a damned good argument for ending education run by LOCAL school boards.

    why did the kid's parents start complaining about their grades? sure the school should hold their ground, a bad grade is a bad grade....but it seems to me, in the cartoon's last pic....it's the PARENT's that are the real problem!

    I love it! But there needs to be a third frame, with the principal berating the teacher.

    I teach seniors. There is an unwritten rule that: ALL WILL GRADUATE ON TIME! (Esp. the criminals)

    What exactly does bad parenting have to do with local school boards?

    I would argue that another big problem with public education is that it's compulsory.
