AP: Parents Complain Too Much to Professors

AP reports on a supposed trend of parents complaining to professors about their kids’ education, grades, course scheduling, and so on.

In eight years of teaching at Princeton, I have never been contacted by a complaining parent. Come to think of it, I have never been contacted at all by a parent during the academic year. So my experience tends to contradict the AP story.
