Default Calling Parents of school age children: input on class survey!!

I am a teacher and am trying to create a survey that parents can answer on, just specifically for my class (not my school). What questions can you think of, that you would like to receive so that you can leave feedback on, and let your child's teacher know what you are thinking the status on certain aspects is?

Please post any questions that you know that you would like to read on a survey coming to you from your child's teacher.

Thanks!

Do parents think that the amount/difficulty of homework is agreeable?

Personally, I think it depends on what your goal for this survey is.

Do you want specifics about things the parents do or don't like? Or do you want a general feel of how the parents are responding to something like the curriculum or classroom management in general?

Surveys often lend themselves to being a conduit for complaints without constructive information. So, I suggest keeping that in mind when wording your survey.

Since, I'd prefer to discuss what pertains specifically to my child, I'd rather have questions that serve that purpose, which in turn means I'd rather have a one on one meeting to discuss things.

Now if the teacher wanted to know about general feelings about things such as field trips, science projects, seating charts and other things that are more about the specific teacher's philosophy, then I'd not mind ranking those type topics in order of importance....or some such manner of answers.

However, when it comes to things like homework, expectations of what they will be learning, discipline techniques, etc, I'd want to address that individually, not through a survey.
