I agree because parents are not the only teachers of our children. The more you know the more you can understand and social issues become clearer

Education begins with parental education, then formal education takes the experienced mind of a child and help open it to worlds of formal education. However, don't believe that a child comes to school with an empty mind. That is ignorant.
