There are many issues that affect publics schools today but, according to the National Center for Educational Statistics, family factors seem to drive most of the serious problems in public schools.
High on the list and considered “serious” problems by educators are overall lack of parental involvement, poverty, and parental alcoholism.
Student alcohol and drug abuse is also a large problem but is on the decline, contrary to popular belief. Weapons possession was reported as a problem by less than 3% of teachers and less than .5% of principals.
