    That’s the hed on this AP piece in the Fayetteville Observer. It’s all about a poll of parents and teachers on their views of the schools. I think the headline is quite misleading, as there seems to be broad agreement on a lot of topics:

    * 73 percent of teachers say they know more than their students about learning tools available on the Internet. On this topic, 57 of parents say they know more than their kids.
    * 71 percent of teachers say class work and homework is the best way to measure academic success; 63 percent of parents say the same. A minority of both groups favored test scores.
    * 79 percent of teachers say high schools do a good job, if not better, in preparing students for college. A smaller but still strong majority of parents, 67 percent, agree.

    Not a whole lot of meat there.

    So, both the parents and the teachers are delusional.
