Chronicling the Experience of Educating our Children and Managing our Family

Choices, Choices ...

Our first daughter, Audrey, is nearly 7 months old, and already my husband Andrew and I are struggling over where/how to educate her.

The current options we're kicking around include public school, Catholic school, the very nearby Waldorf school and homeschooling.

Admittedly, I'm not thrilled about public school. I went to a handful of public schools and a handful of Catholic schools. I had a good experience at a small, neighborhood Catholic school, a great experience at a small, rural public school, a poor experience at a wealthy Catholic school and and particularly crappy experience at a suburban "good" public school. I left there after the 10th grade and started at my local community college. But Andrew had a good experience in the Austin, TX public school system [years ago], and isn't nearly as jaded as I am. At the risk of stereotypical old cooter "everything is going to hell"-speak, I do feel like the public schools have only gotten worse since we were there.

Thankfully, we have a few years to decide.
