I grew up in a “good” school district where there were pipe bombs found at the high school, horrible Ecstasy problems, and all sorts of weird stuff that I heard about from my publicly schooled friends.

Gee, those are the reasons many of my friends have been given by their children to NOT attend the local private school.

Jen, you have obviously done well and I applaud you and your parents for that, however, you have no experience with public school systems, and therefore no credibility with finding fault with them.

My husband and his sisters and nieces all went through a public school system so pathetic it ranks with NYC, DC, and Chicago, yet every one of them is a productive member of society. We left Delaware primarily because our child is so bright and we are unable to keep up with her. Virginia public schools are far superior to what we had available to us.

I applaud the fact you, unlike others, are rare to criticize those of us who choose public schooling. I truly hope you keep up with that position.

If i remember right, JenB does have experience with the public schools as she has a brother in a low - incidence program (can't remember which one)

So, even though she was homeschooled, i would imagine she's had some exposure through the education her brother receives at the local public school.
