Everyone seems to complain about the schools. Yet, there is a specific change that only parents can bring about, writes David Akst in the Wall Street Journal. Insist that your children fully apply themselves and commit to doing your part. The strongest predicators of achievement are parent's expectations. Parents of achieving students insist that conscientious school work be job one. Resist the impulse to help too much. "Would doing push-ups for your children strengthen their arms?" Kids form lots of habits. Doing well in school should be one of them.
