Knowing What Schools to Consider for Your Children

Knowing What Schools to Consider for Your Children

As a parent, you may be getting to the point where it is almost time to begin looking at schools for your children. Sometimes it will not be an easy choice because there is pressure coming from all directions. Everyone has an opinion about what school is best. Thankfully, it is ultimately the decision of the parents who know their children better than anyone.

It is true that some schools might not be a good fit for some children. A child who has a disability that will keep him or her from ever being even an average student might be better off in a school that helps kids with similar disabilities. Who is to say where to draw the line? A private school has the right to say what grade a student should be in based on academic testing. A public school would do the same.
An independent school might not feel that they could bring in someone with a learning disability because their goals are college prep. The parents can make the choice to try to enroll a child in a particular school, but then the parent must be willing to accept what academic testing says about his or her child.

The reality that all schools and parents must face every day is that no child is alike. People try every day to put children into a box so that they can say a child has this or that disorder or learning disability based on comparisons to other children. They can continue to do this and try to get their statistics, but no child is the same. No child can be put into a box.

It is true that a school does need to do these comparisons to some degree in order to place students in correct grades. It can go too far however, and it can often stereotype children into having a disorder and becoming something that they might never have become. As parents, it is your responsibility to keep your child from being stuffed in a box that contains children who are just different.

As you look at schools for your child, you will need to really look at your child with fresh eyes so that you can determine what is best. It is okay to ask for help, and it is okay to listen when doctors suggest that your child might end up with a learning disability or even a disorder like an autism spectrum disorder. Children with problems like this might need special attention, and ignoring it will not make it go away.

It is really up to you as the parent to make the final decision as to what schools will be the best fit for your child. You might realize in advance that because of the problems your child has, he or she will never be accepted into a certain type of school. It is okay to realize this and try to see what your child will be able to do.
