As a parent of four children, I understand how each child’s personalities are different. Not every child’s personality and learning style fit the cookie-cutter mold needed to comply with traditional public school’s teaching approach. Some kids are a bit more boisterous, some squirmier, and some more inquisitive. These personality types do not fit the pattern for the traditional public school system. Because of this, I felt that it was not only needed but critical to find another option for my children.
Enrolling my children in a charter school filled a void traditional public school left within my children’s academic life. It offers an innovative approach to education that is tailored to their individual needs. They are excelling in ways they never have before. They feel heard and understood, and are excited to explore the world through different subjects being taught. Their teachers work hard to get to know their individual needs that help them be successful. Our children are not cookie-cutter students, and it is time our all schools start treating our kids like the individuals they are and start engaging students in various ways. This is what learning should look like in all Idaho public schools.
