I read what someone posted, that I should be a friend to myself. I have to admit I agree and have come to the same conclusion. The reality is change is an indifferent experience. It causes one to be more honest with yourself because the you are no longer comfortable. I must admit I am appreciating my current circumstance more than I have in the past. Presently, I am looking for schools for my son. I had no idea how competitive it is to find a decent grammar school. I was aware yet, to experience this ...lets just say is disheartening. The lovely city where I reside your local taxes pay for the school yet, my neighborhood is great. honestly, but the surrounding neighborhoods are questionable. it is amazing how city blocks change so quickly in the windy city. You have to have your child tested for public schools. I have a friend whose child tested very well and their child was wait listed for every school. That makes no sense. Therefore, the other option is to pay. There is one school that requires you to take out a loan. It is a great school. Then there is another school that i love 14,300 per year. Let me just say their curriculum is excellent and they truly do challenge the children. So the question is what do parents do that can not afford these schools.......I have yet to receive an answer.......because I fit into that category at this present moment. notice, I stated at this moment not forever. Anyway, now what about he parents that do not know how advocate for their children. There is a movie call waiting for Superman and it is about the educational system and different things parents do for their children to make sure they receive a great education. I have yet to see the movie because in reality I don't want to see myself on the big screen. So now i am thinking...do I relocate to the suburbs, move out of the country, or other options. Now we believe everyone deserves a quality education then why is it not available? Just my thoughts.
