Whenever I have the privilege to speak to a group of school parents, I often witness a disappointing turnout. The same 20 or so parents, the ones who show up to all the meetings and seem to “run” the school, are the ones who turn up. Often, it’s difficult for people to openly ask about the issues they encounter with their children on the Internet. It can be embarrassing to admit your 7-year old son is doing web searches on terms like “porn” and “boobs”. Yet, how can someone like me get the information across and address the topmost concerns of a school community if we don’t get a good level of participation from all the parents and have an environment where honesty leads?
