Secret Parent shares the reasons behind parents' frustrations with teachers

A few days ago I touched upon a very insightful and honest article from theguardian.com, outlining '10 things teachers want to say to parents, but can't.' It covered different aspects of the parent-child relationship, as well as parental support in the education of their children, inside and outside of school. Some of the points are so very true, but at the same time, I thought 'what would I think or have to say if I read that post as a parent?'

The answer was obvious, naturally:

"10 Things Parents Want to Say to Teachers, but Can't..."

Just as candid, this article - once again from the Guardian - was apparently created by a Secret Parent who, I believe, has some very good points to make.

My top 5 include:

1. We're confused by complicated grading
2. Homework - let's all keep it real
3. Ditch the crumpled letters home
4. We are not a blob - rather, a lot of individuals
5. Talk to us honestly

Indeed, lots to read and think about here. Do enjoy the article and I hope you can also appreciate both perspectives in this vital balance that needs to be attained by parents and teachers in order for all students to succeed.
