Up for Debate: Parental involvement in schools

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at 12:03am

How involved would you say parents are in their child's school? What could be done to encourage better working relationships between parents and schools? Should the government pass measures to push parental involvement?

re:Loner...I have NO idea how many 'A's" H.S students typically get. I was lucky to get 2 out of 5-6 classes. Most times just one, if that.

Guy's racism is out of control. Where'd this guy emenate from, anyway?

Go back into your childhood, Loner. How many kids did you know that loved going to school? How many of them studied so hard trying to get an A in their classes?

Most kids hate school and only want to pass their grade: To hell with the As or Bs, just give me a C.

yogi bases others childhood on his useless life.

Jughead is Clint Brewer?

Clint certainly has a jug-like cranium...and he's a crackpot right-winger....the kind of cowardly creep who would hide behind a username, in order to vent his pent-up anger....Clint, is that you?

Wish Clint would step in & get rid of the riff-raff.

Just consider the minor troll a small bug and walk on.

Nemo - Can I step on it? LOL

Hide behind a user name, Loner? Gimma a break, fella. How many on this site let's their name be known other than their username?

No one want's their name or address known. Ashamed, perhaps?

I've got news for you, dumba$$, I imagine I've had a much better life than you have the brains to think about. That is if you have any brains that are usable. You sure don't post like it.

Bfra.....I don't think you are capable of understanding. Forward vision comes with intellegence.

By: bfra on 5/7/13 at 8:18

Raspy, does that "forward vision" not include spelling? :-)

yogi - Loner's name has been on here many times. Pictures of where he lives, goes to Church & other personal information. However, it does take brains to have a memory & that leaves you out.

By: bfra on 5/7/13 at 8:34

Raspy, I don't think you are capable of explaining your statement, thus the flimsey response!
