You hit the nail on the head!!! Bingo!
I got my Guidance Counseling Certificate and decided to become a real estate agent...lol
Anyhow - in my experience working in that field - I can tell you that many families lack the social environment that would support a healthier school environment. What does this mean? Broken familes, drug addiction impacting the family, you name it, it's running rampant in our entire society. It's sad.
Anyhow - the school has turned into a glorified babysitting place for many parents who are struggling to keep up with their bills - (modern society where if the family has both parents in the home - both are working and scrambling to pay taxes, put food on the table, etc.).
It's the rat race and kids and schools are wrapped in it. Oh by the way - the teachers in the schools have families and kids too and they're going through the same thing!
Keep the faith and keep on keeping on - and keep in touch.
