We cannot believe that our Lil O will be five this coming week. Time sure does fly!!! With turning five comes starting school in the Fall. It's really sad for me to think about my little shy O is going to start school. I'm not liking it one bit I might add.
Schools have always been a topic of discussion in our house. Superdad went to a snotty private school. I say that with a smile on my face because I have to tease him. I, on the other hand, went to a public county school. I can say without a doubt in my mind that Superdad got an excellent education!! EXCELLENT!!! Much better than I did. I can admit that without having a problem! It's the age old question.
Do public schools offer the same education as private schools?
So, here's our situation. Superdad would love for Lil O to go to his school but there's no way we can afford 12,000.00 just for Kindergarten. The price goes up with each grade I add.
We really don't want to throw our shy baby into a public school setting.
A Montessori School
A Charter School
Or a much smaller private school with lower tuition.
I think every child deserves the best education they can get! I think that is something that the USA has let slide over the years. A LOT! Do not get Superdad started on education! HA HA!! Like I have stated before, it's something that has been talked about A LOT in our house.
Our goal this week.
Visit a Montessori School and a Charter School. Details to come.
