Well, I wasn't actually referring to you...
While I agree that parental involvement is critical in a child's education, if their teacher doesn't give a rats ass about what they're teaching and simply treats it like any 9 to 5 job then the child's education will suffer. Even with the best effort, a lot of parents don't have the education themselves to help their children.
That wasn't what I was saying. There are bad teachers they are a problem.
My point is that even great teachers are limited to what they can do with kids who don't care and parents who don't care.
Having better and higher paying teachers won't be the answer if parents don't understand how critical they are in the process and step up to take accountability for their kid's education.
Good teachers are key...but parent involvement is even more important.
