Public, Private, Charter, OH MY!
School is back in session, Thank God!!! Summer is over and the Yellow Buses are on the move.
This year hubby and I put our children back into public school. We tried a charter (won't mention who) for two years and it was a hot mess! Fortunately my children did very well and we managed to wallow through all the sludge of our Charter School!
I have learned over the years that there is a definite distinction between Public, Private, Charter and of course Home Schooling. However, having tried them all except for home schooling (much praise to you moms that can do it) Public is the way we are going! I'm so loving the benefits that my tax dollar pays for and there is absolutely nothing like public school funding! Even with cut backs your child still benefits from; buses, cafeteria, media center, computers, labs, gymnasium, Bachelor teachers (some with Masters, some with Doctorates) auditorium, smart boards, etc.,
I can not begin to tell you how grateful I am for all this good ole' public stuff! One of my first public privileges, to tryout the yellow school bus, the kid's love it and so do I:)
With that said, the harsh reality for me is when Jordeyn, my 6th grader, told me yesterday that I can not go to the bus stop with him in the morning or wait for him at the bus stop when he gets home.
This morning true to his word he hugged and kissed me then told me, "I love you mommy, bye" and he was out the door!
What are your thoughts? Public, Private, Charter or Home School? Child telling you don't walk or wait? :)
