  • Yes, I would. Race is totally not in issue in our family. We are a multi-multi-racial family as it is. I grew up in an area where I was the minority, but not the only one. Race is only an issue/problem if you make it one.

  • If the school was accepting, and my child was fine with it... I wouldnt mind if they were the only one of their race. If the school was private and diverse I wouldnt mind.

    I would be most concerned that both schools were going to give a top notch education and be accepting of all children.

  • I'd go with private school. There is no diversity when only one child is different from the rest.
