Is it possible to give zero stars? Perhaps the other reviewers expectations were low but ours were actually pretty simple: treat our daughter with respect, treat us with respect and provide an environment in which she could learn to love learning. Instead, her kindergarten class was a good portrait of what happens when a teacher stays in one place for wayyyy too long. (in this case 18 years). Examples: It was clear from the start that the teacher played favorites and if a child wasn't her favorite whatever was going wrong in the classroom was the fault of the child. The attention to individuals was poor. The way the classroom was run was rigid with no flexibility for individuals. While the students were supposedly learning to read, after my daughter moved to another school we figured out that she actually never learned - she is good at mimicking and that's how she was getting by. Finally, the teacher, whom we were trusting to teach the basics of reading and writing to our child, was a poor speller. I started to feel sorry for her - however remembered she had access to spellcheck.. I have always been a strong advocate of public education. This experience made me seriously question why we fund what we fund.
