School Tells Parents: Please Stop Smoking Marijuana on Campus

Oops... School Sends 'Hurt Feelings Report' Making Fun of Bullied Kids


A new education bill in Mississippi would start allowing teachers to grade parents on their involvement.

The Parental Involvement and Accountability Act would focus on parents whose kids are in low-performing schools - and judge them based on involvement with things like homework.

But should teachers be allowed to assess parents? Two experts sounded off on Fox and Friends Weekend.

“I think this is one of the least controversial plans in American education,” said psychotherapist Nell Gibbon Daly.

“It just creates a wonderful dialogue between students and parents and teachers to come to the table and try to discuss what would help a student thrive in an academic environment.”

But “this is not the way to bring parents to the table,” argued Mary Clare Reim, an education policy researcher at the Heritage Foundation.

She explained that the report card would allow parents to be graded with marks of “satisfactory,” “unsatisfactory,” or “needs improvement.”

“We should be encouraging policies that empower parents, not penalize them,” said Reim, adding that this could unfairly affect parents with demanding work hours.
