Thanks for your time, and Enjoy!
In the past or in the future "only a public school education" is a prescription for failure. There's no such thing as "only a public school
education". It's the job of the school to teach a given curriculum, it's the job of the parents to supplement that education based on the
individual child and what goals they have.
The school isn't there to raise the kids, it's there to provide them with a basic education, it's up to the parents to augment that education. 99%
of the time, if the child is a failure, it's not the fault of the school at all, regardless of what the parents want to claim. The PARENT is
responsible for raising the children, the school is there as a support structure, not the primary structure.
Of course with some of the lousy excuses for parents out there today, that's not always the case.
Ever try training new employees? Imagine what those teachers have to deal with day to day with a whole room full of some of those idiots.
