Parents are the most important part of school education

The one thing you never hear talked about with regards to the improvement of school education is the parents. The reason you never hear it talked about is that if politicians were to accuse parents of being bad at their jobs they would never win those votes again. That would be bad for the politicians so the biggest reason that education systems suck goes entirely unaddressed.

There are numerous studies that show with complete clarity the effect parental participation in a child’s education has on that child. They do better in school, they have a greater motivation to do better, and they end up with better grades. They end up with a better future. However, parents simply aren’t told this because it’s unpopular to be critical of someone raising a child. God forbid you tell someone that they’re forever handicapping their child by being irresponsible.
