Not much to add but all states needs to make physical enducation/gym mandatory and if possible, bring back recess *wishful thinking*.  My anecdotal story: several years ago when I was subbing, I encountered a sixth grader who was around 5'8 or so but he had to be around 250 pounds or more.  He was an asshole but I guess I was looking at him with pure disgust but honestly I couldn't help it.  I have a horrible poker face.

what's funny is i from time to time have had friends or colleagues brag about private school education, while sitting next to me who came out of pocket less than $15,000 on my entire education including graduate school and several certifications. and we both wind up at the same place in our careers and i actually am younger. i keep my mouth shut and wonder if they only knew..

i refuse to pay for private school prior to college. i plan to live in good district or send them to public schools that take the best and the brightest from across the district (they are called "magnet" schools where i'm from).

This is not true for all public schools in the USA. My son will attend public schools from k-12 and will start next year. Did you have AP or magnet classes iliveforbhm ?

A parent should be involved with ALL school work. Public school in any area can be great. Just make sure YOU play--- an active role within your school distinct PTA, school broad meetings, volunteer and etc. . . .
75% of education responsibility for children = parents--------- not the school.
You need to give them extra homework, pay for extra classes i.e. chess club, and after school college prep classes.

My children will learn everything they need to learn no matter where they go.
I'm in control of that as their parent.

well if your property taxes are low and you live in an economically depressed area-your public schools will likely suck.

Regardless, why do you care what I or someone else feels regarding the public school system? It varies by where you live. If you live somewhere where the public schools are great. Peachy! I don't...so my comment still stands. I was very specific that I was referring to myself and future children.

No. You can live in a neighborhood with houses 100,000+ and still be zoned for horrible schools. A horrible school system is not indicative of living in a horrible neighborhood. 





Why do I care? I'm not that invested but I guess you forgot what a discussion forum is...

And yes, a bad school district being zoned in decent neighborhoods happens but u know, broad strokes.

^Awesome!

Living in the bible belt, I mainly see religious based private schools and I got a little discouraged.

Yes. There are plenty that don't have a religious component if that where your needs take you.

Good luck!!

Eta: Some of the best prep schools in the US are secular.
