What do these findings tell us about this generation of parents?

BBC has a report on a survey.

One in four adults in a poll of 2,000 for the services website, Directgov, said they wanted an online alert if their child did not turn up for school.
Speaking in focus groups on the subject, some parents said they wanted to be able to play back video of lessons to help with homework.

I think the UK parents are doing the right thing. What is your view?

I think this article is very intersting and think it is a good idea for parents to be able to know what their kids are learning to be able to better help them with homework. I think it may be some time before parents are actually able to do this and for now they should utilize the online tools that can help. Online resources like, are a great place for parents and kids to be able to get the help they need. This site was created by a non-profit education based organization that is geared towards making the internet accessible and useful for communities, especially low-income. It's a great place for homework help for all grade levels as well as information about various topics pertaining to education. I think this would definitely be helpful to parents like those in the article that want to help their kids but need some extra resources.
