My latest Parentella post is on a topic that comes up for me on an all too regular basis:
Has Public School Been Privatized?
When we went to Info Night for our local public high school, we learned the fees for Choir ranged from $1800 - $3200. Had Sylvia been interested in joining, I would've been all over that! I'm fairly certain I've produced full-scale musicals on a smaller budget.
Parents need to ask questions. Even if you're not a PTA officer or volunteering in the classroom, all parents have the right to ask questions about funding, or any other concern. Whether we're paying schools in our taxes or tuition, we have a right to ask.
