    I think this comment about parents in the above post is wild! "It just really irritates me that these people have so much power." Don't you think that should be turned the other way around? If it were not for the parents you would not have a job because there would be no children to teach. Parents have the ultimate responsibility as to the well-being of their children. Yes, I know there are parents that shirk this responsibility and want to throw all responsibility (educational and behavioral) on the school system. Yes, as an educator I understand what you are saying, but as a parent I don't relinquish my "mom hat" just because my child is not with me during the day. There should be a parternership between the parents and the educators.....but, in reality the parents have the ultimate responsibility of how their child is raised and educated.
