“The parents, because the teachers teach it, but the parents embed the principles in the child.”

“The parents. They support the children, and if they’re going to get help, they won’t get help anywhere else.”

“I would say it’s a mix of everyone. At school the teachers and administrators teach. At home the parents are responsible for that.”

“The parents. They have control over everything a student does. … At home parents encourage students to get involved in school and cause them to think school is a good thing.”
