Having two English teachers in the family, I've heard the other side. Parents are the problem. The schools are constantly challenged by Parents who complain that their kids get too much homework or a teacher made little Johnny feel badly because he didn't do his homework. They take it right up to the Superintendent. Combine that with the policy not to leave any kids back that don't perform and you have a real dumbing down. Parents, as a generalization, have lowered expectation for their kids.
