  • My kids are in public school and this has always been a concern to me, but so far all of my children's teachers have gone above and beyond as far as I'm concerned. I am very happy with all the teachers they have had to date.

  • Well, we homeschool so yes, I think my kids' teacher does her job. (c: I have my days where I worry that I'm not enough, but what mom doesn't have days like that? I know that we are doing the very best for our kids by homeschooling them.

  • my dd is 5, and is in preschool. i think she plays more at school than she learns. i ask her everyday what the letter of the week is, and she can never tell me.

  • My son is in private school and his teacher is excellent. She goes out of her way to make sure he doesn't get bored. She does a lot of one on one time with all the kids so they all keep up.

  • My daughter is in third grade in a public school. It's a small public school but I feel like she gets the attention she needs to be able to learn. I have heard plenty of horror stories about kids slipping through the cracks but I feel we have been very lucky. Each year I worry that this is the year that something goes wrong and each year I am proven wrong. I did toy with the idea of homeschooling but I am very glad that she has had the experiences she has had. Also, because she is an only, I feel she is learning a little bit about not being the center of attention by being in a classroom situation.
