Education and Community: The collective wisdom|
of teachers, parents, and members of our community.
POLITICSOf the same question asked of parents and teachers: Should parents be involved with their child's/children's education at school?
Teachers responded 40% yes and 60% no, while parents responded 77.5% yes and 22.5% no.
Results on a second question
was relatively similar.
On further questioning of the parents who expressed any sense of discomfort, I was told they either trusted me or their children insisted and convinced them it was okay, but they still felt uncomfortable.
These numbers tell me that teachers are weary of outsiders and parents are interested in outside influences on their children's education.
