His ex, who he has two kids with, thinks that he should enroll and pay for their kids to go as well. He said he will pay half for each. She can't afford her half. Price is public knowledge so she knows how much it is. She either wants him to pay for them both or add the cost of his portion of their tuition to her CS. She says can take to court. But he already pays over state calculated CS and he is a 50/50 parent.
Should we not enroll her because the other kids won't be attending? Is it unfair to give her a different opportunity because we are in the financial position to do so?
A little more info:
I believe and this is my own opinion, that the public school system is slipping and by the time our youngest gets there it will be worse.
Private school in our town only goes to 8th grade. SD is entering 7th and SS is entering 4th. My son is in high school already. Private high school is in a different town.
All kids have been in the same school zones since the were in kinder, with the same friends. Moving them would be putting them with new friends. (In against because I grew up military and know how hard it is to be the new kid)
Eta. The only way they would know dd goes to a privates school and how much it costs is if BM discusses it with them
Another eta: would it make a difference if i said I am able to volunteer at this school for a discount in tuition? What would you think if I said I gave her that same info and she is unwilling to volunteer her time. I can't get a discount for my SOs kids because they aren't mine. But I can for mine.
Let me put it in a different perspective for you guys
Without BMs help he cannot afford to send their kids. Without my help he wouldn't be able to send our child. I'm willing to help him with our child's costs. She is unwilling to help. Does that mean my child should miss out?
