What will/do you do for school??

Public, Private, or Homeschool......and do you like your choice and why

ETA I realize a lot of us don't have kids in school yet....so what do you think you will do if you are in that situation.

Most likely public, unless I can find a private school we like. Or, if I end up teaching at a private school, then my kids will go there too.

Why? Because we have great public schools, and I will most likely work as a Middle School/High School English teacher once the boys are older.

Homeschool is what is right for us. Seems to work best with our schedules and temperments and allows us to cater the curriculum for each child's differences.

Unschool/homeschool. I don't like the idea of my son going off to school for 8-9 hours to sit in a special-ed class to play. He will still go to all of his special services (ST/OT/PT/EI) if he still needs them but other than that, I will teach him here. I really like the "unschool" philosophy but since DS is non-verbal I think *some* structured schooling would be best... but he's only 20mo now, so we'll see when he's older.

I voted public. In reality I believe that will be my only choice.

OH how I would looove to homeschool. As a single parent I do not see how it will be possible though with the fact I will need to work. Makes me sad though actually

I was blessed to have good teachers growing up though the system is far from perfect. I so hope we have good luck with him... if not, we'll move to a better district I imagine.

We tried public school, it was an awful experience for us. We are happily homeschooling now.....

My kids go to public school. We are very fortunate we have a good school/school district. I give big kudos to people who homeschool but that is not my cup of tea.

Re: What will/do you do for school??

Henry will go to private school, definately. I already know which one. Yes, I'm going to be one of those mamas. At least I have 5 years to figure out how in the world I am going to be able to afford the tuition. Its as much as college... but public isn't an option, I won't send him to a religious school, and I won't homeschool him for other reasons, so I don't have a lot of options.
