  • In my personal opinion, school is important for a child's development and be able to interact with others their same age, and learn to take authority from another adult that is not a relative or friend of the family. A good Christian school is what I am going to choose for my son. I want him to be able to experience school and all the freedom and fun activites without the public school type atmosphere.

  • FYI many of the teachers at Catholic school teach there becuase they can't get jobs at public school.

  • The hardest choices in life are between two good things - which it sounds like you're playing with here.

    Well, God is interested enough in all your choices to help you know what is best when you come to him in prayer. That's what I would do.

  • Talk to your church--they may have scholarships to help send kids to Catholic schools. I also agree with the first person that answered this question. Check out all teachers before you put your kids in their care. My kids go to public school and I check out their teachers to. Do your research and see whats best for your kids.
    Home school is good for some kids---but they also need interaction with other children.

  • As for the "Christian school environment," I learned every four letter word in the book from the Catholic school kids. And there is more teen/preteen sex at bible camp than any where else on earth.

  • I would home school. Then she will get all the attention her actions are screaming for. I used to be just like her. She needs your love and guidance in everything especially God. God bless.

  • I still feel no one can teach my children better than me. Not saying I am smarter, i just know that I can give them the love and attention in this situation that others could not. GB

  • Check out every teacher, every administrator and ensure they have all the necessary credentials to teach. Many private school teachers do not have the necessary and state required licensing to teach.  Also check out the requirements for students.  Is the school an accredited school?  Does it meet and hopefully exceed state requirements?  The public school my children attend exceeds state requirements to prepare them for college.
