A third-grader reminds grown-ups to return their parent surveys

This “Peanuts”-inspired home-made ad is brought to you by a family at Brooklyn’s P.S. 29. That school’s survey response rate was at about 39 percent today, four days before Friday’s deadline for returning the form, according to the school’s parent association website.

The survey results — as well as the rates at which parents, teachers and students respond to them — count for 10 percent of a school’s grade on its annual high-stakes report cards.
