Should parents have the final say on which teacher their child gets?

Yes, I think if the child or parent(s) don't get along with the teacher it will be harder for them to learn.

I think they should if there are special needs or personal reasons!! But I think a trial period should also be considered! There have been many teachers I "did not like" but those are usually the ones I learned MOST from!

Eventhough it's ideal to pick the best teacher who perfectly fits your child's personality, learning approach, and learning capabilities; it is usually impossible to do so. Schools don't assign teachers according to a child's specific learning needs.

Yes. The parent knows their child(rens') personality, learning style and emotions best. If the parent and/or child doesn't feel that the teacher is best suited for that child, I believe that the parent should have the final say in placement.

it is not doable. most parents get the opinion from the other parents. there is always one teacher who has better reputation then others.

yes, if your child has issues that one teacher may be able to work with more easily than another. Get to know the teachers; you already know your child.

I donâ??t think that the "final say" should be up to the parents, but we should get equal say. There is nothing wrong with Christian teachers. In fact we need more that will stand up to what is right. We need to stop lowering the standards!

Parents should have input on the style of teaching that works best for their child, but it is up to the school to determine the final selection. We DO NOT need more Christian teachers in public schools, that is for the parents to teach.
