I really thought I would get some feedback to this issue. How does one get this issue on the Moodle Roadmap??
The parent functionality is Moodle is very poor at the moment. It seems like a no brainer to allow Parents/Mentees to be able to view a Student's upcoming events.
Or to be able to provide consent to Course Events such as Excursions. This would simply be the Policy functionality extended to a Course level.
If Parents could be enrolled as an Observer group, then it allows teachers to easily email parents when they wish.
