Q, I am not sure where you have gotten your information on the "stress" a child feels when their parent disrupts the social balance at school. I have been a teacher for 65 years in 9 different grade levels and I have never seen this as a problem. You also don't have a grasp on the funding issues at schools either. They as well as many other institutions need volunteers because it is not fiscally possible to hire the amount of help that is needed.

In this short paper, the Center for Public Education examines the research on the value of a school&rsquo s parent involvement activities on student outcomes.
Guest blogger "Science Bob" highlights how parents can encourage their children's natural curiosity through activities like dismantling old computers, touring their home's utilities, and borrowing small wildlife creatures for temporary observation.
Is Nationwide Pre-K on the Way?
Georgia is on the right track with its all-day, free prekindergarten program, say parents and educators. Future school reform should include universal prekindergarten nationwide, according to Head Start founder Edward Zigler and . Department of Education Secretary Richard W. Riley.
Involvement allows parents to monitor school and classroom activities, and to coordinate their efforts with teachers to encourage acceptable classroom behavior and ensure that the child completes schoolwork.  Teachers of students with highly involved parents tend to give greater attention to those students, and they are more likely to identify at earlier stages problems that might inhibit student learning.  Parental involvement in school, and positive parent-teacher interactions, have also been found to positively affect teachers’ self-perception and job satisfaction.
