anyone have a second to help me with a project?

I'm writing questions for our MOPS group's "Educational Options" panel. We're having a public school principal, private school principal, and a homeschooler, and the moms will be asking questions. Most of the moms in our group only have preschoolers and are still choosing how they want to educate their children. I wanted to make sure I have a few questions on the back burner though, just in case.

The problem is, I firmly believe in homeschooling, and am having a hard time coming up with questions for the other two teachers that aren't along the lines of "how do you deal with *xyz* problem," obviously showing off my bias.

Anyone have any ideas for me?

Ask them what they believe the benefits are for kids in choosing public school or private school? Or what are some the projects they do as a school, ie; community service, anti violence campaigns, organic gardens at the school that the kids help plant and grow. Even if homeschooling is the best choice, other types of schooling have good things about them too. And not everyone is in a situation to be able to home school, so, making them feel bad will accomplish nothing. good luck! that sounds like a great forum.

How is behavior handled-my child and others?

What is the snack/lunch/bathroom routine?

How are allergies handled?

Special needs-socially and physically?

What is the classroom size?

What are the teachers credentials?

What are the kids expected to know at the end of the year?

What cirriculum does the private school follow?

Does the private school have uniforms? Who pays for those?

Recess? PE? Art? Drama? Music?
