Okay let's say you could design your child's school. What qualities would it have?

  • I would have to say no political agenda. Kids would receive all the help they needed, but if they were lazy or irresponsible they are allowed to fail. Parents are required to be involved. A waiver saying that the school will keep their playground as safe as possible, but if your child is hurt the school is not to be sued. That way recess can't be taken away. Children are allowed to make mistakes. No one will be treated as a criminal drug dealer for taking tylenol during school hours. There are winners and there are losers and that is okay. If one person does something wrong only they are punished, not everyone. I will let you know if I think of something else.

  • A huge cafeteria that offers lots of fresh, organic foods prepared at the tables, like Japanese restaurants do it. Big playgrounds with lots of time to enjoy them. Teachers who aren't there just because they made tenure. Small student to teacher ratios.

  • More "real world" training.

  • Oh that is a good one. Small teacher to student ratios. Also shorter school hours, not longer. The amount kids are really taught in one day can be done in maybe 4 hours. Anything after that is just free daycare.

  • A more diverse student body, kids being helped in areas they need it more in. If your kid is good in math but lacking in english that he have an extra long english class.

  • very well paid teachers and an unlimited supply of money to buy the latest technologies and school supplies and the best field trips. On sitefull service health clinic with doctors and nurses. The healthiest food organic food available prepared by chefs with dietetic training. the best security. I would also have every class room built with an observation room with one way mirror where parents could observe their child's class in action. have staff specially trained to handled special needs kids and discipline problems. yep thats a good start.:)
