Please consider this before sending your child to Scotton.... While I feel the teachers at Scotton have the best of intentions there are some important flaws that are important to note. First of all bribery (prizes for good behavior) is used as a tool by some teachers at Scotton as a way to get their students to behave. As a parent and child educator I know that not only is this not effective- sure it works in the short term but do we really want our children to grow up believing that they should get something for doing good and being good? On the same note I've seen children praised for good behavior and while good occasionally too much praise undermines a child's ability to trust their own decisions constantly looking to others for approval. Come on people we can't hold our kids hand forever! Lastly there is a huge emphasis on practicing the "Golden Rule" yet I've regularly seen staff at Scotton patronizing students! Is this what you want for your children?
