Did Your Mom Eat Your Homework? Schools Shift the Blame for Academic Failure to Parents.
Saunders, Debra J.
Policy Review, n72 p68-71 Spr 1995
Discusses the recent trend of blaming parents for the academic failure of their children, and describes how some programs are attempting to make parents more responsible for their child's performance, a practice that in one case provoked a negative reaction from parents. The author discusses criticism of this new trend and explains why its rationale is faulty. (GR)
