  •  Some parents dont have the luxury of time (3+ / 0-)

    There are parents who have multiple jobs just eking out a living. Such parents should be able to trust their school to be good enough where they do not have to spend that much time engaging in local politics to make sure the right school board members are being elected and keeping an eye on which administrators are hired. Ideally, a parent should be invovled enough to get to know the teachers and making sure their kids are being responsible and attending clases, but should not have to expend energy on actually getting involved any more than that. Sure, everyone has to be involved in their kids education, but the current model kind of demands way too much involvement if one needs to reform a failing local public school.
