Debbie wants to pull up the drawbridge to school buildings and leave parents outside the education moat. She spoke at a hearing on school choice in Michigan and essentially told officials that parents do not know what is best for their kids. We hope that she doesn't represent the majority view of the Michigan Elementary & Middle School Principals Association. On the other hand, this pretty much cancels the need for those darn parent-teacher conferences and silly initiatives to form a meaningful partnership between parents and teachers...wonder what the PTA will do...bake sale anyone?
