My son is in Kindergarten is year. I feel the curriculum is not necessary up to my standards, however, the teacher has always made herself available when I contact her. My son is receiving additional homework, per my request. As a parent, I recourse alternative education material. I have made several visits to the school. One does not get past the common area without picture identification. The principal is always available. One should take some responsibility for the education their child receives. No school is perfect. Spend time with the child.
