    I can only speak for the US, but here I believe that the average parent doesn't play a big enough role in education, but instead expects schools to not only educate, but step into the parent's role and raise their kids.

    Yeah I guess thats true. we are the ones who introduce the child to the joys of reading, writing and Math. My children just love to read and when someone asks them from where did you get the habit they promptly say mama.  I see that they are infuenced by the kind of material we provide for their reading.
