Assisting in the education crisis 

As a Parent-Teacher Association mom, I watched for too many years as several of my daughters’ teachers struggled with unruly children in the classroom. This was astonishing that almost half of their teaching time was spent disciplining. My daughters’ education should not have to suffer due to the lack of other parents’ failure at home.

I strongly agree that we should impose seat-belt laws. My daughters deserve a better education and because your child cannot behave in the classroom, some of our teachers are spending half of their time parenting instead of teaching.

I want more for my children than a second-rate education and know that there are some teachers who want to teach but cannot due to this crippling blockade. It’s time for parents to step up to the plate.
