Revaluating Your Student’s Current Educational Environment and Learning

 

Here are some things you can do to evaluate your student’s current learning environment:

  • Find out how much your child learned last year – use scores from standardized or in class testing or ask yourself - Has the process begun for further development of their creative, evaluating, and analyzing skills?
  • Talk to your child about his/her experiences at school - Are they asking questions?
  • Ask your school’s principal/director to explain his/her expectations for growth of your students skills
  • Look at greatschools.org to see how students in your child’s school performed in subjects like reading, writing and math.

If you are not satisfied with the answers to the above questions, start to look up different school choice options that might be available to you.

  • Use the State Department’s website for a listing of schools available to you
  • Find out if your state allows children to cross over into other areas – Open Enrollment
  • Look at private, on-line, charter and magnet schools
  • Consider Homeschooling- millions of families choose this approach and find it very effective - Are you not sure if this is something you can do?  We are here to help.

Remember that you have options.

I Graduated in 1976 with a BS in Elementary Ed from Framingham State Teacher's College, Framingham, MA. My graduating class was the last the last class of teachers credentialed automatically for teaching in all 50 states. I taught third grade, as well as, music and public speaking for middle school. My teaching years were on and off for 30 years because our family moved quite a bit and there were not always teaching jobs available where we moved to. I have been a substitute teacher during those times for many schools and many grade levels. 1976-1977 Southborough, MA, Second grade Teacher 1999-2001 Tucson, AZ, Middle School Teacher Developed and taught the public speaking and music appreciation course structure to integrate with school academic program.
