There are indeed a lot of stupid people out there, what i have also noticed in schools, (whether they be private or public) is the silly amounts of socialization activities and charity work, when really they should be focussing more on what goes on at home regarding their kids education, it goes on and on and on.
And yes parents are indeed, a big part of the problem!.
They're either non active in their kids education or believe sports will cut it.
They dont discipline their kids enough, they would rather be their buddies than be a mentor.
Parents these days are absolutely clueless when dealing with such matters.
