Re: OT-And here it starts...

Debbie Squires, education official at the Michigan Elementary and Middle School Principals Association (MEMSPA), has sparked some controversy after telling the House Education Committee in a hearing for a new school choice package, that teachers know better than parents what's best for their children, Squires elicited a shocked response from Education Committee Chair Thomas McMillin after testifying on the parent's role in school operations.

"[Educators] are the people who know best about how to serve children, that's not necessarily true of an individual resident," Squires said. "I'm not saying they don't want the best for their children, but they may not know what actually is best from an education standpoint."

McMillin responds, "Wow, parents don't know what's best for their child..."

Afterward, MLive's Dave Murray approached McMillin and got this comment:

"I'm surprised I didn't lose it when she said that," McMillin told Murray. "They think they know what's better for children than their own parents, and that's what I find upsetting."


So shut up, and sit in the corner and let the adults handle your child's education.
