    Were the sentiment not so painfully true this could go to the Humor section.

    It needs to be posted on message boards apt to be read by parents. Maybe they need to be shamed into recognizing their own part in the demise of the quality of education.

    It is freaking SO TRUE!

    I had a parent do one of their kids homework assignment, it was to write 5 sentences using their spelling words. So, she wrote them and she misspelled about 8 words.

    I hung it up in the teachers lounge for all to see, it was funny as heck.



    Some parents. :cuckoo:

    Poor kid. Why can't parents like that understand that children are much happier with praise for doing a good job by themselves. The delight in seeing my mother's reaction when I brought home an "A" on something was the momentum to do it again!

    Ah, the wonders of public education... They should throw more money at the problem like we do in the US. Yeah, that'll work.

    Because, truly, the solution is the blind leading the blind.
