I think if parents were more involved with their childrens' education and stressed that education is imporatnt,it would help. As it is now, parents don't even teach their kids to be respectful and quiet in school. Kids need manners . It seems to me that bythe time kids are in high school,all they care about is partying and having sex and some of them are trying to get pregnant because their parents don't care about disciplining them or setting a good example for them. Kids have no goals and no motivation to succeed or even plan for the future. MAth and science scores will naturally go up if education is a top priority for kids AND their parents. It is scary how many Moms here at CM barely know how to spell . School doesn't seem to be important to them.
