Your Opinion: Parental involvement benefits education

Your Opinion: Parental involvement benefits education

July 22nd, 2014 by Terri Rader, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

I am a parent of two boys. I take full responsibility for their behavior. I think parent involvement in behavior problems at school is crucial to children learning respect for authority.

I think we have to be careful playing the blame game as to why they do what they do. I know that trying to fit all children in a tight little box of how we want them to learn can cause a lot of problems.

I believe teachers are given a huge job. One teacher in a classroom shouldn't be the norm. As preschoolers its 10 to 1. Why the big jump when they go to public school?
