Most educators welcome parents who get involved
To the editor:
I have to disagree with the Speak Out caller who implied parents should not be involved in public education. Most educators I know welcome the involvement of parents in their children's education.
Several studies indicate parental involvement and expectations are one of the best predictors of academic success.
Both parents and professional educators have their place in the educational process. Neither should be ignored.
