Public education is a money eatting machine with benifits only for the middle to upper income. Ky ranks in the mid 40's of 50 states. Teacher are more interested in having low income children placed on behavior drugs, sent to behavior centers, alternative schools or will just force them out of the school system. If any child is into sports then they are a god in the eyes of the system, although most graduate, even though most had below or failing grades. The money making machine or the state, requires so many students graduate. Answer this question, How many students involved in sports are drug tested in school? Even though it is the school's policy. This person here knows for a fact, that I party with some of those boys and cheerleaders, with booze and pot at one of the players home. So answer this what the hell is right with public schools? People believe everything the school administration tells them about the public school system, go do some research and you will find out on your own.

That may all be true, but that's life. You can put your little precious snowflake into private school to protect him from "teh evil" but you can't wrap him in bubble wrap forever. What are you going to do when he has to go off to college? College is basically everything you mentioned above times ten.

Please don't think that just because a parent is okay with their child's public education they are so naive as to believe that the system is perfect. It's flawed, but so are most systems. The thing is, my kid is going to be pretty well prepared to deal with that when she grows up. Is yours?

Posting a topic does not mean you get to dictate what direction the conversation is allowed to take. HTH!

'Help', as you have obviously noticed it's difficult to gather information pertaining to a legitimate question so I'll try to be of some assistance. I'm not aware of any private tutoring in this area, besides of course the traditional home schooling at the parents discretion. Check with the Board of Education to ensure clarification on this subject, as education is of prime concern.

my 1st question to you would be do you home school your kids? i know several kids that have been home schooled & most all of them either have very few social skills & most are not very smart because the parents that did the home schooling were either dumber than hell or they mite have looked at a book ten or so minutes a day.there are some things wrong with public schools but i would rather send a kid there than to have one grow up & live in kermit.i am in that area a lot on business & i my guess is there was a lot of home schooling & way to much recess

i forgot one other thing, bush really screwed up with the no child left behind because there is always going to be some kids left back.i'm not saying this to be cruel but ask any teacher & they will tell you this. it mite not be because of the child but because of their lack of being pushed by their parents.go up some of the hollows & its generation to generation that doesn't go to school or work because family members have never done any of this again i'm not being a smartass or anything but its true
