    Just about every societal ill we face can be traced back to adults who fail at being parents.
    As a teacher, I spend much of my classroom time trying to correct this.  Policy makers need to understand that kids are more than test scores and those who do not get the love and encouragement at home will often look to the other adults in their lives.  Teachers are often the next in line.  It takes time to form relationships with ones students but it is time well spent and time that will ultimately create a more successful student than time spent on test prep.
