As a kid oriented Grandmother and ahem GREAT Grandmother I know a couple of dozen kids from teens on down to 2 years old. Only two of those kids are going to public schools. The parents are so done with the schools. It is so easy to home teach these days, the online programs are terrific and many can be combined with activities in the public schools that provide good opportunities to meet and interact with others. I don't know why anyone would associate with these selfish selfish teachers who ditched on the kids and the elders. Very sad.
