She grew up overseas so was home schooled as well as privately tutored. Machete Friday school yard clean up just didn’t work for me very much, or barefoot, lice endemic schools in a “Westernized” country. She had a few years in the U.S. in a gifted program and missed the cut off for the very highly gifted high school program by 2 points. We had her take the SAT. She scored 89% so we enrolled her. The recruiter literal said, “Holy $h!t.” Our public schools are beyond horrid.
We home school too. My daughter’s values will be mine and my wife’s, not the government’s or their employees’.
