Indeed, if our country is going to move forward successfully, it’s going to be more from the parents–than the schools. An excellent op-ed.

As an immigrant, a former teacher, an always parent and citizen, a current attorney who works for public schools–I know that it’s about time to get the parents (and next, the kids) at the responsibility table. Education will not happen without that. If they don’t get there soon, it will indeed be a very very scary world for us.
Thank you, Thomas Friedman.
