Reports For Parents: Would You Make The Grade?

reports for parents A politician in Florida is calling for schools in the state to issue grade cards - or school reports - for parents.

Parents would be awarded 'satisfactory', 'needs improvement', or 'unsatisfactory' marks.
Florida State representative Kelli Stargel is hoping the Parent Involvement and Accountability in Public Schools bill will implement a grading system for mums and dads of children in pre-school up until Grade 3.

Ms Stargel is recommending parents are appraised for their response to requests for conferences or communication, for their children's completion of homework and preparation for tests and physical preparation for school that has an effect on mental preparation and on the frequency of the student's absence and tardiness.

Speaking to a US newspaper, Kelli Stargel said: 'I'm assuming through this process that every parent wants the best for their kids. You can have the best teacher in the world in front of the classroom but if the child isn't there, then they don't learn.'

What do you think?
Would you like to see parental grade cards in the UK?
Or are home school agreements quite sufficient?
Would YOU make the grade?
