Parents play greater roles in the development of a child because most valuable and moral lessons are taught at home, as the saying charity begins at home

Pro

In an environment where children spend 9 months of the year in schools, five days a week, from 8:30-4:00, in schools, schools most definitely play a larger role in the development of a child than parents do. Especially when you stop to consider that 50.1% of the population is part of what is considered the "lower class" and 12% of the population is part of what is considered poverty, and many people who are in poverty work two to three different jobs in order to stay alive and/or support their families, meaning that oftentimes, they are not at home to teach their children anything, or even help with homework. In a society where it is increasingly common to leave children at home for extended periods of time, simply out of necessity because of work, it would be irresponsible to believe that schools do not play a tremendous role in children's development.
Humans are social creatures, and social creatures learn best by imitation or in groups, meaning that the more that they are around others, the better that they are learning. Therefore, it would make sense that children are better at developing and learning things like social skills in schools, rather than at home where they can spend long periods of time alone with no one to speak to.

Is this argument dealing exclusively with children who have parents? Or are you arguing that if any child were to go to school and also have parents, the parents would have greater influence?
