I attended Aiken Elementary as a child. When it came time for my own child to attend school we made sure we were zoned for Aiken El. Things have changed drastically. We gave the teachers and administration multiple chances to challenge our child and to answer our concerns. Administrators especially only seemed to care that children were following the strict rules--who gave a darn about their education. Any attempts to encourage challenging my child were met with confusion. "Why do you care so much? Your child is ahead!" Yes and I'd like my child to STAY ahead thanks very much. There were multiple behavior problems in the classroom including 6 year olds dropping the F bomb hitting teachers throwing objects and receiving little to no punishment. Teacher quality is hit or miss. I saw many instances where teachers behaved with little concern for professionalism. One particular incident was a kindergarten teacher screaming at a parent in car line who's child was mistakenly put on a bus "Move on! It ain't like she's even here!" I ended up pulling my child out after the Christmas break. We are very happy in our new school.
