Am I alone in thinking the Detroit Public Schools' situation is ridiculous? First they bribed kids just to show up for school on state count day (important for state aid funding) with prizes from local businesses. Now, because only 34% of parents are involved with their kid's education (per Fox 2 this morning) they're bribing PARENTS to attend conferences other active participation. They'll earn points to turn in for discounts at local stores. Are you kidding me?
I know it's all for the kids in the end, but come on, parents! Do your job even without something material in it for YOU. And shouldn't the school board be able to spend their time improving the schools, not paying off lazy parents? Sheesh! (Sorry to all the good parents in Detroit. I know you're out there and I DON'T mean you.)
Maybe there's another way to look at this?
