How do you know that your child’s school is doing a good job? If the school is safe and is teaching the standards. If your child can read, write, and do math on or above grade level, is able to get along with others, and is doing well on standardized exams, then you know they are going to a good school.
How do you know if your child’s night school is doing a good job? If the night school does not merely teach what is being taught in day school. If the night school teacher is focusing on fostering curiosity, problem solving skills, compassion, and self-management skills, then you know they are going to a good night school.
If your child is not going to a good day school, see if you can transfer him somewhere else.
If he is not going to a good night school, then you are in even bigger trouble. Start giving the night school teacher some serious professional development (start by reading this blog!) or your child will be in trouble down the road.
