"Forced" and "Volunteering" seems like a oxymoron to me. But, I think parents should "volunteer" to "volunteer" in their children's school

No. To ask is fine however the goal should be to create a cohesive environment not a resentful one.

No, forcing someone to do anything breeds resentment. Ongoing campaigns by other parents to encourage participation is best.

I feel that parents should not be forced but to be simply asked simply because they need the extra help.

No, some simply can't, and for those who currently won't will have a bad attitude because they are being forced. When children see their parents acting a certain way they will follow their behavior. It's not the govts. responsibility to make people better parents.

I agree with mom2bree, when the motive is correct, the results are best.

I feel it is very important to be involved in your child's school and their education

No, but greatly encouraged. Children benefit so much from having their parents more involved in their lives. Also, w/ budget cuts schools need help.
