Our county kindergarten program isn't very good. It's 2 1/2 hours. The standards state they must pass the PALS test before going to 1st grade and the girl across the street didn't pass and they are promoting her anyway. She isn't reading which is required.
I don't approve of a one size fits all education, but that is what public school is. Everyone reads at 5, everyone mulitplies at 8 etc.
Truth be known, I don't want him in public school. I can't afford private school anymore. My dh won't let me homeschool.
I'm a wreck. -- vent, rant, vent... STRESSED by my own accord.
