2 Reasons Your Son Or Daughter Should Attend A Child Centered Charter School

If you would prefer not to have your child attend the standard public schools in your area and private schools are too expensive, a child centered charter school could be exactly what you need. Since charter schools typically operate using different accountability standards than standard public schools, but still get public funding, they combine many of the benefits from both educational choices and do so without charging tuition, as private schools must.

#1-The Focus Is On Educating Children Instead Of Following State Mandates And Expectations

One of the more controversial changes in the way that children are educated in recent years has undoubtedly been the Common Core State Standards. Many parents questions its use and it often seems to take unnecessary steps and excessive time for kids to get the right answers. In standard school settings, your opinion might never be heard and your input on the educational choices made for your child will often never even be considered.

Since charter schools are more flexible and do not have to adhere to all of the same rules that typical schools do, it can be easier to change policies and practices that are inefficient, inappropriate or just not the best way to teach students. There is no guarantee of immediate change, but it does mean that when your son or daughter attends a child centered charter school, your opinion and the way your child learns is likely to matter more than when they are just another face in the crowd.

When your opinion as a parent and your child's experiences as a student matter more, everyone is likely to benefit.

#2-Although Students Are Often Taught Differently In Charter Schools, Students Still Have To Show Similar Progress As They Would In Other Learning Situations

It is important to note that although a child centered charter school will often use different teaching methods and provide non-traditional learning opportunities for students, accountability and student outcomes are still crucial. That means that although your child may use unique problem solving techniques to acquire knowledge in their new school and kids have more input in on how they learn, they are still required to prove what they are learning and that they are functioning at an age-appropriate level.

In conclusion, choosing for your son or daughter to attend a child centered charter school is a huge decision that can impact them for years. If you are ready to leave much of the bureaucracy of public schools behind and you want your child's education to come before complying with rules that do not always benefit the students, it is time to start checking out the different charter schools in your area.
