Has anyone else totally stressed about the right choices for their kids?
Great article! Yes, we have stressed over school and have a long list of schools that our DC has attended (though not nearly as long as Beth Berry!). Our 11 year old has attended:
- A German Waldorf pre-K
- An co-op pre-K
- A traditional neighborhood public elementary
- A public charter parent co-op elementary
- A inner city charter elementary
We begin the search for middle schools for her this fall. It really has been a journey for me. I went from feeling like I could never send my child to school to feeling like public schools are not idealistic enough for my child. I am always my child's school's strongest critic at first. But now, I am a huge fan of public education and of my child's school.

I have to admit, we don't have much in the way of choice where I am and I guess that can be a blessing!! When my oldest was little we did entertain ideas about both homeschooling and the one little funky private school that existed at the time. I guess we listened to him and our gut and went we public school and we haven't regretted it!
