So what do we do?  I have one in the 10th grade and one in the second. I am
very worried about the younger of the two, he will spend more time in the
ultra-liberal system. Shelley has been in advanced and gifted programs all
her life and has to spend more time on math, science and English rather than
values re-education.  Besides, she's discovered that a conservative teen is
as much of a rebel as the hippies were in the 60's!
I resent spending my tax money on liberal values propaganda.  I plan to send
Shaun to private school as soon as possible.  Heck of a waste, that public
school has to be avoided by those of us with common traditional values.
Thanks, Martha for the inside views.
