I agree that there needs to be more activities for the children, academic as well as athletic. However, with severe budget cuts, those activities are seemingly impossible to develop. The school receives less and less money each year to do the same--if not more--with the students. Many teachers donate

However, having said that, I believe that if parents were more involved throughout the school year rather than just in May and June, when it's time to see if their child will pass or fail, the entire academic experience would be vastly different from what it is. We each--parents, teachers, students, administrators--need to take a look at our own accountability to make our school a success. Not just one entity can make it happen. Be realistic. Read less
