Parents: How do you feel about grade-monitoring programs?
Over the past few years, schools in my local districts have implemented programs such as Aeries to give parents access to grade updates for their children. They are given a username and password where they can log-in and monitor progress on assignments, projects, and overall grades.
Does this enable parents to connect with their child’s education? Would this cause more stress for K-12 students? What could be the benefits and drawbacks of permitting such monitoring?
