EDIT: Thanks, girls! I do love hearing your opinions–these are great! Remember to be kind–so far, so good.
And while I’m not going to share my own opinion yet (don’t hold your breath–not that exciting), I’ll share my background:
Preschool through first grade–Christian school. 2nd-4th grade–homeschooled. 5th grade–public school (very big school district). Moved. 6th-12th grade–new public school (small school district, lots of Christian teachers). College–Christian. Student teaching–public, international Christian (Japan). Teaching experience–1 year public, 1 year Christian, 1 year subbing public.
See how qualified I am to have an unbiased opinion?? 🙂
Okay, you’re all chomping at the bit. I’ll go ahead and ask the question.
If you have (or had) school-age kids, answer this:
We have chosen (chose) to _____________________ (send our kids to public school, send our kids to private school, homeschool our kids) because _________________..
If you don’t have kids yet or they’re pre-schoolers, answer this:
We plan to _____________________ (send our kids to public school, send our kids to private school, homeschool our kids) because _________________.
25 words might be impossible. Do your best. I’ll give you my thoughts at a later date. They’re a teensy bit muddy.
