Today the peas are discussing the answer to this question: "What is the biggest challenge facing our educational system?"
As you probably guessed, most peas first answer was "lack of parental involvement". Predictable. Everyone blames the parents, right.
I had to disagree. I spent 5 years being an overly-involved parent in my child's education and the system was still unable or unwilling to provide J with what he needed to succeed educationally, even with a heaping dose of parental involvement. Yes, that does still annoy me. It was a collosal waste of time and energy and I wish I had been able to see that earlier.
So now *I* am the educational system and the parental involvement is at an all-time high (lol). What does it say that the system says it can't succeed without more parental involvement however it has proven that it can't succeed with parent involvement *but* the parent/child can succeed without the system's involvement?? Let's think on that a bit, shall we?
