i have seen many private schools with teachers there just to get paid. I went to publice school and had some teachers that to this day I will tell you changed my life. I went to a clean school with intelligent teachers who cared. I have had some babysitters (teachers) that wefre not great. That being said if he is helping pay it I think he should get to voice his opinion. If he is not court ordered to pay for it and this is just a personal choice on your part I think you should use your child support towards it and foot the rest yourself.I am a single mom who doesn't get child support and everything mine need I pay for out of pocket. So when I wanted private preschool I busted my butt for it. So I say not all public schools are nasty or unqualified, But if private is what you wish for I say go for it as long as you can afford it

Quoting BigG{30+}:" But she's been in public school with no problems now? So her education up to this point has been below par? I'm just not getting the logic here. "


Elementary and preschool is a jumpstart to her education.. High school is a very important part of a child's education and I think she deserves the very best.

Um, yeah, I'm a public school teacher, my school is clean, and I'm far from inept. I take GREAT offense to your post.

OP if you want to send her to private school then I would suggest that you come up with the cash for it being that it's a luxury. Or look into charter schools.

You want your child to go to a private school then you better be able to afford it. He should not have to contribute to your excessive wants for your child. He should be expected go pay for half the school supplies and school clothes he would have had to pay for a public school.
