Although I agree that parents/guardians 'can' play a role in supporting public education, I don't believe we should design a public education system which requires the involvement of parents/guardians. Obviously the reason is too many parents simply are not programmed to have this responsibility, and it really does not make any difference the reasons since they are pervasive in society.

IMO those municipalities who cannot provide safe neighborhoods and schools are a huge part of the education problems...
