What role should parents play in championing education reform?
With all the problems our country faces, I believe changing our education system should be at the top of the list.
Besides voting, how can parents play a role in ensuring true education reform happens?

It depends on the parent. if the parent is involved in their child's life, engaged with the school and has a first-hand grasp on reality, then they should be an advocate for their child's school. Ignorance is the biggest problem we face right now. We have a lot of pressure to spend gov't spending so education is always one of the first things to get cut, in non-metro areas, especially in the South, test scores are stagnating and teen pregnancy is on the rise. So step 1, be a parent. Step 2, be an active parent, Step 3, fight for your child's future.
