"I am a teacher. Most parents haven't been in a classroom since they were children-believe me things have changed. Open House once a year doesn't allow the parent to see the interaction between students. Many of our children are lacking the one on one attention they need. A good parent helper can do this!"

"I think it could pose a hardship on certain families. If both parents work outside of the home or if one parent has to stay home and work with the other kids or if there is a single parent struggling to make ends meet, missing work could be a nightmare."

It seems that most parents believe that parental participation is a good thing. We just have to work on finding a way to make volunteering possible for everyone without making it a requirement.
