Brunswick Co. Parents Join Their Kids in Class


-- Some parents in Brunswick County headed into school Tuesday morning instead of work. Students at Leland Middle School could bring their mothers and fathers to class.

They received lectures on the Dewey decimal system alongside their kids, paid for school lunch and even had to change clothes for PE class.

The middle school hopes to bridge the gap between parents and teachers and hopefully increase parent involvement. Principal Rob Knuetshe says the class sizes and number of students in the school is probably the biggest eye opener for parents. About 160 parents participated.
