The author comments on the article "Constructions of Parents and Languages of Parenting," by Judith Suissa. He mentions how Suissa explained the reductive notions of parenting and education by identifying several factors, including home-school relations, childrearing, and education policy documents. He explains that the development and implementation of an educational agenda are the responsibilities of teachers, school administrators, and curriculum planners, among others, while parents are considered adjuncts of such an agenda.
