I totally agree with you. Each person has to do what he/she thinks is best for his/her child. However, with that being said, there are a few things I want to point out about the momversation. I agree with Alice (short hair) in the sense that if MY child feels unsafe, we will go private (if there are no other options.) Giyen makes a good point on the cost issue. I'm sorry but $12000 is a lot of money to pay out of pocket just for grade school. I like that Daphne said she used a friend's address. I think that is what we will do if we haven't moved by the time Tanner starts Kindergarten. I'd love for him to go to Wintergreen, but we live out of district so we would use my mother-in-law's address and pray that we don't get caught. But then again, what if Wintergreen isn't the "IT" school in 3 years? They change so often and they are constantly re-districting. I guess in our situation, we will just have to wait and see. Obviously, I want him at the safest and academically best public school but who knows which one that will be by the time he starts kindergarten. Coming from both worlds (attending public and private), I'm choosing public. I never felt like I belonged when I switched to a private school, but that was just me. That was my personality. I didn't want to fit in. I had my closest friends at public schools. The people in that private school that I went to had a rude awakening when they went off to college. Not all of them, but a lot of them because of the fact that they had been handed everything and their parents always got them out of sticky situations before they ever got in them. With that being said, unless public schools get SOOO extremely gang-related and unsafe, Tanner and Stokes will be going the public route. I just feel like its best for our family.
