I really don’t want to get into a whole rant about why the public school system in America is severely broken. But, towards the end of last year, I asked my daughter why she got something wrong that I knew she knew and her response made me cry.
“I did it because someone teased me about getting everything right.”
If you’re a parent of school-aged children, or have been, I don’t think I need to say much more than this. You should already understand why I despair.
I do all I can to educate my kids at home. I offer them as many learning opportunities as I can afford. But, all that work can be undone and my only remedy is to get my kids out of public school.
I wish I made enough money to keep my kids in private school.
