“What most parents really want is a dialogue”

The Baltimore School District recently put on hold a parent involvement effort that would have required students to assess how each students is performing in 100 (yes, 100 different ways). According to the Baltimore Sun, “o help teachers communicate better with parents about how their kids are doing in the classroom.”

That same Sun editorial applauded stopping the program:

“There ought to be easier ways to facilitate communication between teachers and parents than filtering them through 100 jargon-filled data points. After all, what most parents really want is a dialogue…”

Makes sense to me…
