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

Yes because the teacher may not be the right fit for your kid learning style

If there are issues between teacher and student then yes of course parents should have a choice.

I just wish we could know which teacher was teaching which grade before the first day of school. They make it too secret.

So parents should be heard, but understand that their opinion is only one part of the mix. Ironically, what's popular might not be best for a kid.

It's even more complicated. They need to balance the good kids to the challenging ones, boys to girls, young to older, & even balance friendships.

Wow, that would be awesome, but sounds very improbable. In reality there are simply not enough of the fantastic teachers to go around.

That would be a dream but in reality it would never work. Parents would be fighting over the good teachers.

Parents should be able to request a teacher but the final say should go to the school.

I'm not sure how that would work on a large scale. Sure, there were teachers (especially in elementary school) my parents probably wish I had gotten, but I learned to work with the ones I was assigned. If kids get stuck with really bad teachers, though, by all means parents should see about switching their classes.
