My insubordinate challenging selfish moody mouthy 15 year old girl

I can see how sending her away would be a form of coping out or running away from it. I think I'm just getting frustrated and don't know what to do.
She was a good little girl. Never cried. Always listened. It's recently since she started her 10th grade year she's become increasingly more difficult. I'm tempted to think or even blame the people that maybe she's befriended but I like to think that I've taught her right from wrong. She Has to know this behavior is unacceptable yet she continues to do it.
I also fear that my 8yr old little girl will learn from this and start acting like her sister.

What has she been like before she became a teenager? If she was already like this chances are she got away with what she wanted? You need to set the boundaries now. You need to set the rules and tone of the home life. If you do not do this now, which should have been done ages ago, she will walk all over you more and more. Sending her away is only giving her license to be more like this. IT IS AKIN TO RUNNING AWAY FROM A PROBLEM OR GETTING RID OF A PROBLEM. It is not going to make her behave any better if you send her to boarding school. She won't be gone the entire year either as there are mandatory holidays, weekends, and summer breaks to deal with....she will come home.

I'm having this issue with my 14 year old daughter. She thinks she calls the shots. I'm a single mom and her dad undermines me all the time so he can be the hero and friend. I made her move to his house for a wakeup call. I'm hoping she gets it but i'm having a hard time because i miss her so much.
