Vici, I'll put a pot of tea on, with maybe a shot of something in it--I've got a cold, too, but it's not too awful ... a few sniffles and a scratchy throat. Husband o'mine says it would help if I rested my voice ...

Teacher types - I have a question. Where is the fine line between too much parent interest/involvement in their child's education and the parent 'not caring'? Would teachers prefer the good old days when parents were seen only if the teacher requested a meeting? Not trying to be confrontational; just curious.
30/Nov/12 3:18 AM
 |  |

Heck no! I noticed the more the parent involvement the higher the overall academic performance!!! And this is after 36 years of teaching at the different schools in different economic levels from very poor and public housing projects to multimillion dollars homes. Plus the various schools I've been in as a mentor teacher.

The above subject got my going!
everyone!!!

If a child misbehaved continuously in my classroom, I demanded that the parent come in and observe for him/herself! If a parent was confused about the lessons, I sat that parent down and taught the subject to him/her. I made sure that the parent knew that he/she was the most important teacher in his/her child's life!

Successful teachers realize that teaching the child means upholding the three part partnership - teacher, child, and parents. All three must do their part or education doesn't succeed very well.

Thanks shosho. It just seemed to me that the general feeling was that teaching would be a great profession if it weren't for the involvement of parents and the government.

I used to think that the poor neighborhoods produced poor students. But I learned that many were from immigrant parents who were too busy, tired to work with their children and felt that they couldn't help. However when we empowered the parents with English classes and how-to-help-your-child classes the academic performance for their children rose very significantly.

Yes, Daplap, a moderation of government and parent involvement is very good. An overdomination of either is bad. When we standardized education meaning setting goals for each grade level was good and the testing at the end of the academic year was a good way to gage how successful was your program or what needed to be tweaked.

Pounding the heads of teachers or threatening them with loss of job without seeing the community needs and getting programs to help community is like bashing your head into the wall. The body is still there but not functioning. Governing officials have a hard time realizing that. They think it's a business and firing nonproductive person will improve the product. Hello! Not going to work!!!

Informed parents who are willing to do their part produce successful students. Parents who think that the teacher should be able to work in a vacuum (meaning no parental support and the expectation they the parents don't have to teach manners to their kids) produce students who fall on the wayside.

Okay I'm steamed out. Will get off my soapbox. Thank you for letting me present my views.

Aahh.. teaching comments. I remember as a youth, my mother taught in a public elementary school in a government housing project in the outskirts of NYC. One day she told a lad to have his mother come to school the next day. Instead, she was met by a group of older boys More...

I may go overboard about being one of those parents. Like Shosho, I encouraged and pushed for positive parent support. I would rather see a parent with a concern at my door, than the principal with a complaint. I think sharing, the teaching responsibility, gave us better opportunity to work with More...

I don't remember my mother ever coming to the school, except for what is now called Meet the Teacher night, and a time I got into a fight. (It was not my fault). Nor do I remember her ever looking at my school papers or homework.
I want my girls to know, I am interested in them and what they do at school and who is in their classroom and to know, I can and will talk to their teachers for them.

Time to find something else to do. First on the list is throw Shelbly out. Nothing like having a dog in a closed up house, when she has an upset tummy. No smelly air fresheners can cover that smell, but it can clear a room.

Daplap, your original question has too many variables for there to be one answer. At the elementary level, in general, more parental involvement leads to better students, but there are anti-teacher parents that make things much worse by encouraging their children to be defiant. At the high school More...

shosho, if the government fired their 'nonproductive persons', we'd be a lot better off.

Shiela, congratulations on finishing your decorating. I am always amazed when attending services on Christmas and Easter (and no, I am not a 'C&E'). Catholic churches are generally kept somber during Lent and Advent, but are spectacularly decorated on Christmas and Easter. Easter is always a one day decorating process. Christmas depends on how many days between the last Sunday and the Holiday.

Many thanks for all of the insights. When I was growing up, it was simple: you passed or stayed back a year, or went to summer school. Parents usually were only expected to show up on Parents' Night or get involved with discipline problems. Suspension was the double edged sword. I have often wondered if my schoolmates would have faired differently with today's 'no one left behind.'

I'm with you Captain J. Motivation was not a problem with student pilots and it is an important element in good learning. When I started I found that the basics fell into place quickly - don't make them throw up on their first flight and ---don't let the little darlings kill you. The rest is easy.

I just got back from the funeral of a neighbor (we own the property on all 4 sides of her place). I just found out that in the past 2 weeks the replacement valve in her heart had sprung a leak and she was diagnosed with brain cancer. She passed away before they could decide on any treatments. I'm glad it was quick.

I am not a teacher, but as a parent I found the schools which included parents were far more effective.

How the Hostess Bakery empire is being divided:


You may have heard that Hostess Bakery plants shut down due to a workers' strike. But you may not have heard how It was split up. The State Department hired all the Twinkies, the Secret Service hired all the HoHos, the generals are sleeping with the Cupcakes and the voters sent all the Ding Dongs to Congress.

Jerry, I think you missed the point that Shosho was making. If the teacher is ineffective look at the cause. It may well be the teacher, but it may be 'other' influences.
My main 'beef' with the education system is that there is too much emphasis on 'rights' & not enough on 'responsibilities'!
