N.Y.C. Charter Network Issuing Report Cards for Parents
One of the largest charter school networks in the country has started issuing report cards for its parents—scoring them on how well they support their children in school.
The "parent-investment cards," by the New York City-based Success Academy, score parents monthly in three areas: school readiness, homework supervision, and responsiveness and investment.
Parental involvement has always been a priority for Success Academy—to such a degree, in fact, that the network is sometimes accused by critics of pressuring families to remove their children from its schools if they don't live up to the exacting standards.
