As a concerned parent and teacher, I know we have to address the issue of "who's responsible?"
It is certainly debateable by both sides.
Well, I was actually reading an article and in a staff development, the same issue reared its head again. Why is this even a question to debate? Isn't it all of our responsibility to play positive roles in children's lives.
It takes a village to raise a child~African proverb.
When did the notion of teacher vs. parent become a rival debate?
We (parents and educators) work T-O-G-E-T-H-E-R to assure every child's success.
We need each other. I can't imagine my children not having their teachers in their lives to help shape their imaginations, build their intelligences, and show them that their academic and social potential are precious jewels.
is of the essence! So we should stop spending time debating who's at fault and ALL of us (parents or not) need to mentor, adopt, share, create, and be active participants in the lives of children COLLECTIVELY!
We're in this together.
Okay, I just had to address the issue... Comments are positively !
