  • I would homeschool. That way, we could work at a higher level than what he gets at public school. I can't even afford private school.

  • i have my first child in school now he is in all day kindergarten. i don't think all day is important. it is the same curriculum as 1/2 day, now there is more recess, snacks, lunch and specials. i wouldn't mind if there was more educating going on.

  • i would love to be more educated myself so that i could homeschool. well...i am not sure about homeschooling. for my SD i wish that she hadn't had to change schools so much and that she had consistent more one-on-one work with teachers. i feel like she needs more work on the basics. she is in 3rd. my SS, i just wish that he brought home more actual class work so that we knew more about what he was doing and we could see more of what he was doing. I also wish that his teacher communicated better with us and that we had recieved popcorn words sooner to work with him on at home. i don't even know what they do towards math. i am unfamiliar with Kindergarten expectations in general. i guess i would love to be able to homeschool if i knew my kids would enjoy it, learn more, and still be able to do extra curriculars. i wish that they were more involved too.
