So I had my Daughter in private school for several years. Had to take her out do to finances. So this year my Daughter, now in the public school system is struggling with math. Well I find out that she is actually behind in it! After further investigation, we find out that the way she learned math in private school is different than in public schools, and private schools DO NOT have to meet the same standards as the public school system! I find that quite disturbing considering that amount you pay for private schooling. I also understand that private schools set there own standards to some degree in this area! or may not have to meet any standard at all! So we are back tracking now to get our girl caught up, which I am really kind of angry about! 1: How is it that the Educational system private and public can and do have separate standards for math? 2: How is it that there is not a body to hold both accountable to a common standard? Numbers are absolute so this should not be rocket science to accomplish. I talked to the Teacher at the public school who does teach Math and she told me my situation (Students coming from private schools to pubic school struggling in math) is NOT UNCOMMON. Something about this seems really wrong.
