The Future of Education

Frankly, I don’t remember my parents ever calling one of my teachers over a poor grade or because I complained about unfairness.  Now parents routinely call to accost teachers in primary and middle school.

That might not be so bad, except for principals and teachers who are already overworked and undercompensated.  But the trend has continued into college, where professors are now receiving calls from parents to question their children’s grades.

Don’t gasp in disbelief yet.  Employers now report that parents are calling to complain about their children’s job reviews!  Truthfully, I can’t imagine walking into work the day after my mother called my boss to argue about my performance.  But if there’s any question which way things are headed, this sums it up to a tee.
