Should parents accept the school placement of their children despite concerns about the school?

Most parents do not have a choice but to accept. Personally, I would seek a replacement/transfer with all my will.

- Aphterskoole

Yes. The child should be prepared to study and work hard, regardless of the school in which he/she was placed.

- sandracolthirst

Yes, they should. Unless they have a medical reason or something like that, they should take what they got.

- Shannysmithbaby

Yes, parents should. All schools have the same curriculum, etc. Build the environment and your child will flourish.

- MsGreyToYou

It's hard to send your child to a school that he/she passed for that is geographically out of the way.

In a democracy, parents should have a right to choose or to question anything they are concerned about.

I'd be concerned too, but the number of spaces at the schools that are not in volatile areas are limited. What can one do?

- lugirl0704

If my child passes for a school I'm not comfortable with, I'm not sending him/her there.

- UniqlyMeRebelT

Yes, they should. In fact, they should all go to the school that's nearest to them.

- Altonbuddle

Students are receiving placement based on performance. So if they want to go to top school, study harder.

- smith_genius

GSAT is flawed and not all students can survive at certain schools. That's reality!

- TerriEvents

They worked for which school they got placed, but I don't wrong the parents to want to change, if it is a volatile area or school.

- Peddiespice

The school the child attends doesn't affect his/her learning ability and should not.
