17. I want our media to report how many parents don't bother to show up for conferences
Edited on Sun Jan-03-10 11:17 PM by proud2BlibKansan
It blows my mind every damn year. How many brain cells does an adult lack to not want to come to school and meet their child's teacher? Or even call them on the phone? Or answer the phone when the school calls?? Why do we have to use our cell phones to call parents???

It doesn't matter what district it is, whether it is low income or middle class or wealthy - urban, suburban or rural - all have parents who refuse to get involved.

And just once I'd like to see a story in my local paper or on my local news reporting the number of parents who don't show up for conferences.
