Mississippi bill would allow teachers to grade parents


JACKSON, Miss. — Rep. Gregory Holloway (D-Hazlehurst) has proposed a bill that would allow teachers to grade parents based on their involvement with their children's education.

Lawmakers are saying that House Bill 4, also known as the Parent Involvement and Accountability Act, is a step in the right direction to hold parents accountable for their children's education.

Holloway said, "It's nothing but a wake-up call to shock parents into reality about the importance of their child’s education."

Fox News reported that the legislation would require a section on student's report cards on which parents are graded on different areas tied to their child's education, such as teacher communication, tardiness, absences, homework completion and readiness for tests.
