GP X-Post: Schooling your kid
After four years of home-schooling, we sent the kid back to public school this year.
I wouldn’t say it’s been a smooth transition, but it’s been less fraught than it might have been. She’s almost a month in and – as she puts it – not even a little bit dead yet. A few of the days have even been pleasant!
As working parents, we started sending the kid to school when she was two. Over the years, we’ve done all the schools – religious private schools, non-religious private schools, public schools, home schooling, un-schooling, and now public school again.
I’m not here to tell you which is best for your kid – because frankly you have to decide that. This is just a post about the pros and cons of each sort.
