My 16 year old son wants to quite private school and go to public
This subject keeps coming up from him. At first I was afraid and angry. Now I think I will do some research and give it serious consideration.
He is at a private Christian school that is quite small. He has been there since 6th grade and is now a Junior. He has issues with the atmosphere at school being so stifling to anything out side of what I the call the "cumbya" mentality. All the upperclassmen act quite superior to those that don't fit into the mold that the group has constructed. My older daughter, now 20, really hated the school and now DS is at that point. They kids there are quite wealthy....we are not. They judge other students very harshly.
If I can be assured that he will have his learning disabilities considered and worked with then I think I should let him do it. The type of person that he is going to be is already in place.
I haven't talked to DH about it yet. Don't you all think that DS is old enough to help make these decision?
