Bill would require parents to attend parent-teacher confernces.

By

Ohio house bill 319 would require parents of students who attend schools in districts rated " continuous improvement" or lower to attend at least one parent -teacher conference per school year prior to December 31.  Parents who do not attend will be fined $50 per child for non-compliance.

 

No, I am not making this up.

First of all, most schools only have one opportunity for a parent teacher conference prior to December 31. What if the parent can not make the time is it is scheduled? What  if a parent has 2 students  (or 3 )  in different schools in the same district, but the conference times are all at the same time?

 

Who is going to enforce this? More time for the school staff to enforce "rules' instead of education the students!

 

I have been very active in my 3 children's education and make almost all of these conferences. However, this is really an example of "big brother"  overkill!!

 

What is your opinion on this?

I never really understood how we need to require parents to do this? I have attended every single meeting at every single school my kids have needed, and my kids are doing great.

Any good parent would agree with this bill, although I understand your concern about policing it.  I think that a $50 penalty sends the wrong answer, I'd rather see an arrest warrant issued.  There are areas that we need big brother, and others that we don't.  I don't like big brother in the form of camera surveillance, government sponsored computer hacking, and anywhere that DNA can be collected and abused.

I just can't see how it would be enforced. Good parents don't need this, the ones who don't care need something
