Obama says “As Parents, We Have to Set the Standards for our Kids… It’s Not Just the Teachers’ Responsibility”

- By Bossip Staff

President Obama was giving a speech at a middle school about parents setting the standards in the household and he gave an example of his own daughter and what happen when she got a bad grade.

Pop it for a Peek…

It is a problem when some parents think that it’s the teacher’s responsibility to set the standards for their child but the parents have to step in too. If parents don’t teach their children to set goals, is it really the responsibility of the teacher???

    AMEN!

    It starts at home. If a child isn’t getting the proper discipline and social skills they need at home first, how can they go somewhere else and know how to act. These parents send their half raised, delinquents to school and expect teachers to be resopnsible for teaching children.

  • GET REAL

    I read an article on how 8th grade graduation celebrations among blacks are getting bigger because they don’t expect their kids to graduate high school. I’ve witnessed this personally. It’s a damn shame when you set the bar so low with your kids that you are renting limos for middle school graduations.

    You are your child’s first teacher. As a 1st grade teacher, I implore parents to READ to their kids.

    and that is the problem today, parents do not teach their children anything at home, they blame the school, society, anything but themselves!

    Teachers should do their jobs to the best of their ability, but the parents had the child, so responsibility to that child is their #1 focal point. How you gonna blame the teacher if you never read to little johnny?

  • lt

    He is absolutely right.

  • da darkness

    did or didn’t Obama go against that blind govenor from New York Patterson?
