Should Your Kids’ Teachers Grade You Too?
If this passes in Florida, would it be all that surprising to see it spread to other states in America. What do you think, would you like to be graded? How would you do?
If an elementary school teacher graded you on your involvement in your child’s education, what kind of a grade would you get?
Should your kid’s first-grade teacher be grading you in the first place? If Florida state Rep. Kelli Stargel’s bill becomes law, public school teachers will be required to grade the parents of students in kindergarten through the third grade.
The parents’ grades of “satisfactory,” “unsatisfactory” or “needs improvement” would be added to their children’s report card.
Stargel, a Republican who sits on several education legislative committees, says that parental involvement is key to educating children for years to come.
As the mother of five, Stargel says, she understands the importance of her role in educating her children.
“I think a lot of parents understand that is something that is critical,” she said. “On the other hand, you have some parents that don’t realize they are not providing the needs.”
