The article focuses on the powerful and continuing influence of parents on what their children are learning in the U.S. Parent's attitude toward the school greatly affects the belief of children. When parents have confidence in the school, their children will come to school with wholesome attitudes of confidence and respect. If parents believe that schooling is valuable, the children themselves will tend to look upon education as something important. Parents must then set a good example for the children to have a positive outlook in education.
