My son was public schooled for 8 years (K-7th) before we brought him home to be homeschooled. This is our first year HSing him in the 8th grade & I LOVE it. I know it's not private school but I LOVE the fact that he is getting a Christian education now that he wasn't getting in public school so I'd def vote for the private school if it is one that will teach her about Jesus. I am not fond of our public schools at all!

Personally, Ernest and I would like to be able to homeschool our boys if we are financially able to do so.

If both of working will be a hardship for us to place our children in private schools we will have no choice to place them in public school. However, personally I believe that if you are blessed enough to place them in private school then go for it. I only say this because my raising my oldest son has made me lose a lot of respect for public schools over the years.

Also, having them in private schools also allows them to learn the word of God. Something they will not be able to do so in public schools.

Ian is currently enrolled in a Christian preschool, but once we move and the boys are school age we will be homeschooling. We're moving from some of the best public schools in the country to some of the worst.

Thanks Kristy (*Kiliki*) for the awesome siggy!!

I've heard too many bad things about the public school system to ever put my children in it.
Though... Depending on the area, private may be just as bad as public. It really depends of the children there. I had a friend go to a "Christian" school, and it was probably one of the worst things he could have participated in.
If homeschool is an option, I'd go for that, kids usually love it, and it doesn't have a to cost a lot. It really depends on what type of curriculum you use. I've opted for "The Thomas Jefferson Education," and that only has to cost as much as you want to put in it. Let me know if you're interested, since I could go on about it all day.

Tolerance obviously requires a non-contentious manner of relating toward one anotherís differences. But tolerance does not require abandoning oneís standards or oneís opinions on political or public policy choices. Tolerance is a way of reacting to diversity, not a command to insulate it from examination.

I am a public school teacher so I am def biased! I think they are good schools- just minus the religious aspect.

I homeschool for preschool, but around these parts, you don't pay for public preschool, you get in if your child needs it.

I think it's hard for me to say which is better because it all depends on the teachers i think. You can be paying like crazy in a private school or paying nothing in a public school, if the teacher is not good the child will not learn. So I think there are probably wonderful schools on both sides but it probably will take some research to find which is which. Here were I live in India the schools called public schools are actually private and cost a lot. The governmant school are generally ill staffed and free. although anyone with any money does not send their kids there. Then there are the catholic schools too... It a tough call here.. I hope Anaiah does not grow too fast. oh and there are the embassy schools but i refuse to pay more than 16.000+ dollars a year for kindergarten!

Thank you Vicki for the BEEautiful siggie!

I am for public schools but if you can afford private go for it. Make sure you know the curriculum and so forth also. I want our children to go to public so they can be exposed to the world (like I was and my husband had a horrible time at private school being teased) but be taught the Bible at home. It is my responsibility to do and I am afraid that I (I am not saying you) will let my parenting slip since they are being taught it at school. It is just my personal opinion.

I think it would depend on the curriculum for me. Public schools where I am are generally horrible - they concentrate so much on the standardized tests that they don't bother to teach basic education - it's pretty sad.

I think I would do private school if I could afford it, but it's more because the private schools offer a better education. My church doesn't have religious schools specifically, unless you count BYU so either way I'd be responsible for teaching my children about God's word and the church we belong to etc. I feel like that's my responsibility anyways.

Home schooling is definitely an option, but it really depends on the kids. A lot of kids don't respond well to their parents trying to teach them anything - it's the same reason piano players pay someone else to teach their children how to play.

My husband and I will probably never have the money to afford a private school, so I will most likely home school my children and hope for the best.
