Back then

Back then the children sat there and learned. When one acted out a note or phone call home from the teacher meant serious discipline (maybe even a whoopin'). Parents were also involved in their child's education, made sure homework was done, and kept up with grades.

Today if a teacher calls home the parents only concern is why their little angel is being singled out. No discipline, no involvement, just drop them off and expect the school to do it all. If a child is behind, it's the teachers fault.

One adult can't do it all today. A lot has changed in 45 years.
