When did education become the panacea for societal woes, and how did it happen?

When parents decided to abandon their responsibilities of raising their kids.

I see the truth in what you say, although I also know some really great parents who have raised conscientious and decent human beings, most of whom just happen to be smart.

My next question is: how can the school community encourage parents to take up their responsibilities again?

Joan said...

I didn't mean all parents. But so many have abandon their responsibilities.

How do we encourage them to do what they should be doing in the first place?

I don't really know. I think schools enable parents a lot. At my school kids get in school suspension, Thursday school or Saturday school. I can not believe the amount of crap we have to deal with because parents won't come down on their kids or expect them to behave like humans in school.

I see a lot of suspensions/detentions too. Pretty soon, those consequences will lose its effectiveness on repeat offenders. =/
