Teachers shouldn't be grading parents, CNN expert says



While it's probably not likely to gain much steam amid more pressing talk of teacher quality and school choice, Florida state Rep. Kelli Stargel's bill that would have teachers grade parents has generated a lot of heated commentary. 

The latest salvo comes from CNN education contributor Steve Perry, who asks, "Why would we even consider that?" He suggested that such a policy would more than likely drive a wider divide between parents and the schools, and posited that the idea does little more that cause a stir.

Check out his commentary and see if you agree.
