Depends on the options in your neighbourhood on Aug 21, 2014 @ 08:22 pm

If there were really good public schools in my neighbourhood I would probably send them there but if they were not top notch and there good private schools as an option I would do that. It's so competitive these days I think you have to do what you can to prep your kids for that. I don't have anything against homeschooling but it might be harder to socialize them.

I believe that religion should be taught at home however I also know that there are many busy families. The only problem, only one religion is taught. It should be more open to the different types.

Now, with that being said....

I agree with Ali above.

Also, do your research on the schools. Get reviews, ask other Moms. Check out the school's testing results and how it ranks nationally. ASK THE CHILDREN!! They may have the biggest input for your decision.


My kids were in a school that met my standards, but in the final years the school drastically took a turn for the worse. I was so happy to switch schools and so were the kids!

Public school on Aug 22, 2014 @ 11:59 pm

I went to public school. Had some friends who went to private and wore uniforms. Had a few homeschooled friends as well. But for my kids, it's public school. The school here are good and I'm happy so far.

Catholic is not am option but it is like a mix of a public and private school. Catholic schools are usually privately founded by Churches and other people but costs a little more than a public school. I know for Catholic high schools that they don't actually need to be Catholic to go but I am unsure for Elementary. Also uniforms are a bonus, no matter what school, because it makes it easier to dress your kid and it makes them less likely to be bullied because of what they where and what people perceive from that.

My child is now in public school and I haven't had to deal with so much bullying in my life. She is suffering in her grades and her mental development with such negativity.

Homeschooling! on Aug 29, 2014 @ 03:27 am

I was homeschooling myself personally and loved it! Statisically, it has been shown that homeschoolers score better than children who are schooled otherwise.

Public School on Sep 17, 2014 @ 10:27 am

I think that public school is best for a child because they get to learn about a larger diversity of people, rich or poor. I don't agree with home schooling because even if they score higher academically, I think it reduces their exposure to the real world and real life experiences. I think it there are very important life lessons that cannot be taught at home. For example: How to deal with gossips... home schooled children don't have that problem and never learn to deal with it, however kids in school learn first hand how it can affect people and how to deal with it when it happens, as adults the kids that went to school will have more experience dealing with such issues and therefore will be better equipped to deal with it. Children need to be exposed to many different types of people and public school gives them that.

Which Schooling on Sep 17, 2014 @ 08:28 pm

I like the idea of public School myself.Whether in a private school or home schooling,kids need to socialize with other kids.What better way than in a public school.If the teachers are good at teaching the kids,what does it matter,unless some kids distract easily or some can learn better in a private or Home schooling,then I'm all for it ,either one that's best for the child and they are happy also.
