Fred W Graff School 4

Posted October 28, 2013

The teacher quality is excellent and they truly care about their students. However, this new Common Core is a bit of a mess. Teachers don't seem to have the opportunity to place a child according to their assessment of the child's level and ability. In the first month of school a large percentage of the kids were placed lower than the student, teacher and parents believed they should be. Even though everyone recognized this problem the teachers could not move the student to the appropriate level until several weeks had passed the student was re-evaluated on the designated "schedule." I agree with standards and making school work more challenging but in my child's case she was placed in too low a level and was not challenged. Sure she got 100% on almost everything but the content wasn't difficult enough. The school did re-test and she was placed at a higher level but not after wasting the first 6 weeks of school. This is not the teachers fault. Their hands are tied which demonstrates the danger of a one size fits all system. A system must at least be flexible enough to allow the people who are actually teaching the child to make adjustments when necessary.
