Teach Your Parents Well

22 11 2006

A “deeply ambitious” parent education program in Florida seems to be making a difference for kids.

My peevish question as always, though: why didn’t these urban public schools reach these same blue-collar parents when THEY were the students? It would have made ever so much more sense. And are they managing to reach the current crop of future parents any better than the last generation, or will they have to wait for the Parent Academy to teach them anything useful about academic learning and parenting THEIR kids?
