So we started going around to the various programs to see where we could place Ava for September as we are not totally satisfied with her current school. It is more of a daycare environment without real teachers in the classrooms, which is fine for now but I can tell she already wants more. She doesn't even nap anymore so this is difficult for her...to lie still for 2 hours. We were at a public school that also hosted a preschool and just last year due to budget cuts they had to eliminate PE, Music, their librarian and their counselor. It seems like the public school system is being milked out of every book, note, and ball; privatizing and segregating our schools as everyone who can afford to put their kid in a charter school is going that route. Can you believe we live in the wealthiest country in the world and we have one of the shittiest health care and educational systems in the industrialized world? Plus, we have managed to make ourselves a major target in the process.
