Family Meltdown in the Classroom.
American Enterprise, v7 n5 p42-45 Sep-Oct 1996
Students today receive less care and oversight from their parents than in previous years; many lack the direction at home needed to develop a conscience. Research consistently demonstrates the importance of family patterns to student achievement. As schools try to take over that role, teachers become overloaded. Private schools do a much better job promoting parent involvement than do public schools. (SM)
