Parents Push for Transparency in Education

Other than the expense of putting materials online, are there any reasons not to put course materials online? And given that we have just gone through two years of teachers teaching online (some better than others), isn’t most of it already available online?


At least one proposal would give parents with no expertise power over curriculum choices. Parents also could file complaints about certain lessons and in some cases sue school districts.


Teachers say parents already have easy access to what their children learn. They worry that the mandates would create an unnecessary burden and potentially threaten their professional independence — all while dragging them into a culture war.

    Doncha love that ‘….parents with no expertise…’ slur?

    Anyhow. Levin’s idea to put a camera in every classroom and feed it online is the best idea. No fuss, no muss, just a camera.

    I wouldn’t want cameras in every classroom. And I would agree that there are indeed a LOT parents with no expertise.
