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.
