Re: Press Conference Call with Parent Unions in CT, CA, NY, and TX


One reporter asked the question (paraphrased), “Since parents are not professional educators, should they have as much power as the parent trigger gives them.”

My Responses,

1. Although teachers may have credentials, “average” parents have two things that the best teacher doesn’t have

(a) an intimate knowledge of their child because they spend more one-on-one time with their child, and

(b) the instinctive love and care that they have for their child that they will have a relationship with for the rest of their lives.

2. You don’t have to be an auto mechanic to buy a car.  You can rely on the recommendations of others, and the reputation that the car has with the public.  You don’t have to be a professional educator to pick a good school.

    When we allowed prayer and reading of the Bible in our schools we had good grades and good kids. Isn’t that amazeing. Since we have thrown the Bible and prayer out of school, our grades have gone down and our kids have gone to jail. This is a well documented fact if you care to check it out.

    All I can add is … AMEN!
