I have four kids in the public school system. Although Florida has school choice with magnet and charter schools, they are all the same old public school philosophy that honestly makes me sick, and I am so tired of having my kids in these schools.
Homeschooling is not an option right now, other wise I would do it in a heartbeat.
I was really hoping to find a school choice alternative (free) that has a nice balance of relaxed, basic academics (the three r's) and freedom like sudbury.type schools.
I want a school that is free of homework, reading logs, and insulting "planners" that I need to sign to tell the teacher I'm an "involved" and responsible parent.
Apparently I'm asking for too much. I can't find anything, and we really can't afford private schools. No matter how we crunch the numbers, we have to eat too. Maybe there are actually affordable schools here for a family of 6 on one income?
