take for my 5 year old DD to another school? Even she is doing too well in classes but she appears to be bored. She would constantly be in trouble for "distrupting" in class by showing them how to do it rather than letting them do it themselves. Her teacher sent a note to ALL parents that they are having disclipinary problems with the students and we should discuss it with our kids what they can do and not do. Frustrating to say at the least, another note for all parents telling us we need to displine our kids about behavior and what they need to do during classes. So I went to the District Office to let them know about it and they KNEW of the problems of this school and there is not much they can do about it. I told them that I would like to take my DD out of school to another school. They told me she can attend Magnet schools or private school or homeschooling (that one is not an option for us). With so many numberous school in the town, I was appalled how limited we have in choosing the school for our children. In our "district", we have one school that she goes to that received a very poor grade (under a watch by state) and the only one in our area that is "public". Today was frustrating, we were supposed to get a call from one of the selected schools and the first choice is the magnet school which ONLY our DD would be selected is by "lotto" (picking names out of the hat) and a very LONG waiting list to get in. Another school which is roughly two miles away, they are full and it is out of our district. In short of my hubby yanking my DD out of public school, I am short on patience in getting the education and better environment for my DD that she is probably bored in class. This school she is attending is a very poverty level, low income students there which it is almost 75-80% blacks and 40% disabliity. The teachers there has NO motativation, drive or "I dont care" attitude about things in there. I overheard one teacher telling one parent that she is only here for the money, nothing more. It is a depressing place for them to work there. Even the teachers in other schools we visited gave us the knowingly look when we told them where our DD is going to school and they understood our reasons why we wanted to "transfer" her out of school. Our district office assistant is trying to help us out but we are OUT of our district when we are choosing schools for our dd. We can not afford private schooling, making only $21,000 a year. We do have a Saint Theresa school but it is for Catholics and we are not Catholics. Our family counselor suggested that to look into getting some scholarship or Christian school which we have no idea where we can do this. We do not attend church for a very long time nor planning to do so. However we do value the Christian values upon the students. We can not move at this point, too much work needed to be done on the house and the neighborhood is quiet and I can have chickens there LOL! In short of lying about moving to my uncles or my parents house in a different school district, I do not think it would benefit us doing that because it will come back and bite us in the butt. What choices do we have???????????
