RE 8: Parent Involvement

From: McKevitt, Susan (

The nerve you struck in me was the judgment offered by you regarding your
statement that "Parents who do not become involved in the process cannot
possibly claim they care the way their children are being educated." That
statement comes to me as being incredibly judgmental and dismissive of other
people's realities.

I don't care what class you come from or how you conduct your life. To feel you
are capable of passing such absolute judgement on others shows an incredible
lack of compassion.
