    You could easily change that 1960 to 1990 and it would still be very true.

    I've taught for over 30 years. I went to school in the 50's and 60's. I don't think parents were all that upset with their children. They just wanted them to do their best. Yes they did support the teacher a lot more. I think the difference was that people worked harder back then, had less, were generally nicer to everyone and content with what they had.

    Me too. I said....
    I have taught for over 30 years and attend school in the 50's and 60's. I think it is true that parents were more supportive of the teachers back then, but I don't think they were so up tight about their child's education. They just wanted them to do their best. I think people had a lot less, were nicer to one another and everyone worked a lot harder.
    I notice my msgs. are disappearing. Why?
