My public school is a HUGE freakin JOKE. I am so pissed at them right now for so many levels and am SERIOUSLY looking into homeschooling. They throw 2 BIG parties a year that the kids with perfect attendance for the AYP month get to attend...but let the kids work their butts off for good grades and they get a cute little paper certificate......great :/ And then there was today when I asked that the school counselor ( that completely lacks professionalism) no longer be allowed to pull my child from class without me being notified and the principal ACTUALLY SAID she was "worried about a parent that didnt want their child to See the counselor" umm...that KINDA sounded like a threat.....I think the Public School System is to focused on TESTS, and attendance, and TESTS, and "fixing" our kids, and teaching agendas and NOT on TEACHING our kids the BASICS and THATS why we are falling behind other countries!!!

Private schools probably offer an all around better education. Unfortunaltely that is not an option for most people. We need to do something about improving public schools now. My 13 year old is gifted and he is in a special program through public school and I am happy with that. My 11 year old son is in mainstream public school and it needs improvement.
