My 15 year old daughter wants to go to the new public school here in our county. This si a school that has an wonderful art program. One of the art teachers and the choras teachers are friends of Kait's. She, my DD. has called the school board herself and requested a waiver to attend school out of zone. She took the"test" required by homeschool students on Monday. They just called and said that she passed with"flying colors' ( this is a kid who has never had any school books except math!!) She was also approved for the waiver to attend school out of zone!!!!!!
There is a part of me that wants to so NOOOOOOOOO, please stay home. This is where you belong........
But, I have always believed that children "own their own education and that is their responsiblity. I have taught her to think for herself and to do what she feels is best for her. Now that she has made a choice that I dont agree with I am a little thrown off.
I am going to take her in the morning....... I know I will cry. I am not even sure why.
Now I will be a mom of a kid in a public high school!!!!!!! How do I do that?????
Thanks for letting me vent.
