Hot Topic: Parents Involved at School

In this day and age it's great to see parents get involved at school and take an interest in their children's learning. However, some take it way to far by criticising the teacher, school, and admin.

As a teacher you may get parents complaining to the admin about your teaching because their kid is too smart for an activity or perhaps you talk to fast so they don't understand. Either way, there are some parents that you can't please. They complain that you don't give homework, then complain that it's too much.

While some admin support their teachers, many, if not most, side with the parents since the parents pay the fees. In addition, many times the admin is similiar to the parents; neither have teaching experience.

What do you think?
Does the admin usually back the parents where you work?  Have you had problems with parents getting too involved?

Got an idea for a hot topic?
Email me with your hot topic, name, and website (if you have one) and I'll post it ASAP.
