The youngest daughter (7) has just gone into class one this year. EQ not withstanding that gives her just going on 4 weeks. My wife and I were outraged to discover, that her day is made up of playing and drawing. As for learning to write, she has produced 7 w’s so far. She now comes home complaining of boredom. It was interesting to hear the same complaint from another parent this morning.
As for trying to get a parent/teacher interview with the class one teacher, no luck so far.
I observed her arriving at school AFTER the bell went the other day. She is not committed to her job and it seems, can’t wait to get out of there.
Just in case you’re wondering, we are a blended family and the parenting order stipulates rudolf steiner school. If it wasn’t for that. We’d be long gone.
