There are plenty of parents who go way overboard, but this story picked some examples that actually make sense.
Some parents request a different teacher before the year even starts: Of course they do. The incompetent teachers are well known, especially in a small town, and it's going to be 10 times as hard to get your kid out once the classes are set.
Some parents pick up SAT forms, even for kids not going to college: are parents expected to rely solely on the judgement of a 16 year old whether to take the SAT? Knowing the scores could be the difference between a good decision and a life-altering mistake.
That said, the advice at the end seems reasonable.
