Things we want most in schools for our children....

It seems that all parents want to have the best schools they can have for their children... What things are important to you in a school: High test scores for the students? Special activities or programs? Individualized attention? Smaller classes? Good Discipline? Religous Tradition? Reasonable Cost or free? I am a single person with no children but I counsel parents, teachers and children so I am interested in the subject of education... What is most important to you in schools for your children or for the children you love? What things do you look for? Would you move in order to get it or fight the school districts to get your child admitted to a school that is not in your district to get something you want? What lengths will you go to in order to get your child in the best schools?

So you want the child to be educated, to have knowledge about the world and to be well disciplined... Thanks for posting.

I do not think I will ever be married at all. Therefore, I will not be able to have kids of my own at all to send off to school. If possible, I would have healthy kids to go to school to receive great education; espcially spiritual education through a catholic school. Therefore I would recommend my kids going to church to be fully initiated. My oldest niece is graduating this year, of course. For my youngest sister and her husband, I do not know when and where to send their only child to school.

JUst set and hope that I lived in a place that had good school and they wont change district for you I tried when I went to school and I live 1/2 a block fronm the line! Dont know that it was a better scholl I just wanted to go there for all the kids I knew were going there. WE moved so much that my kids went to 6 different schools in one year! Was one school daughter went to 2nd grade then the next year was going back for we were staying with his dad. and the teacher was going to be he one she had in 2nd now I rasied heck about that I didnt like the way the teacher had treated her in the 2nd grade so she did get another teacher good to have several teachers teaching the same grade!

It is good that you were able to get her with a different teacher...moving around so much is usually not the best thing for a kid... 6 moves in one year sounds like it would have been difficult for you and for them.

I will definitely support this important situation. Children should receive free education. Yeah, everyone has the right to great education. Yeah, children should go to church school to receive experience in religious life and prayer. There are lots of other private schools; special schools for the disabled. Yeah, everyone should receive great education. Yep, teachers are always to be the best for children. The most important stuff in education for me is high grades. My mother used to go to religious/catholic school when she was little.
