Not All Parents Make the Grade in Today's Schools
Horvat, Erin McNamara; Baugh, David E.
Phi Delta Kappan, v96 n7 p8-13 Apr 2015

The demands now placed on parents to evaluate and select educational options for their children, to act as advocates for their children, and to support increasingly demanding academic standards have never been greater. Strong partnerships between home and school can increase opportunities for students. Understanding the nature of these significant changes and how parents may be affected by them is a critical first step.
