I've seen and said this for 18 years in a school district with weak administrators who won't challenge parents and lay the problem at the feet of the teachers with no support, and those that try are outsiders and trouble makers and forced out.
Absolutely this is poor parenting. Undoubtedly the youngsters attention span is reduced to nanosecond due to technology hence making teaching a whole lot harder. Not good, not good at all.
Always great to hear from you :O)
