Although I recognize that public schools are obligated to rely on standardized testing for state and national funding, I feel that the smaller class sizes in this school (and in WY, in general) should offer children more opportunity for actual learning. Unfortunately, it seems that testing is the goal of the curriculum even in these rural facilities. South Side has some truly amazing teachers, but they are bound by state requirements that do not support individual growth or encourage creative learning for the children. There are no programs for the advanced students, and inadequate support for special needs kids.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
