Hi Ladies-My son goes to a fantastic private school. He is currently in the upper age pre-school and has made a few nice friends....Here is the thing...the public school system near our house sucks (to put it mildly). We live in a huge ESL area in S. California. I am all for pblic education...when it works and educates our children. Due to budget cuts, no child left behind etc etc I am concerned about the level of education he will get if we move him to public school. The flip side is I am also nervous that he will be "sheltered" in private school and be going to school with the same group of 20 kids year after year.
I am fully prepared to do my part in regards to his education. Homework assistance, etc. I am actually looking forward to it.
I know he is young (he will be 4 in a few weeks) but I wanted to get some feedback from my wonderful friends on this site. Are any of you in the same boat or have you had to make schooling decisions for your little ones? Love to hear how things went and how they are going....thanks
