Jennifer is a one in a million stay-at-home mom. (More like one OF a million stay at home moms!) She graduated from a liberal arts college but there is nothing liberal OR artsy about her. She is married to Kevin Fischer of This Just In, and together they have a beautiful young daughter Kyla Audrey. In no particular order she loves dogs, wine, a good bargain, her family, pizza, and entertaining. Follow her blog of all things miscellaneous including but not limited to cooking and baking, entertaining and party planning, being a mommy, and homekeeping.
If Slate tells me anything I’m doing is bad, then I know I’m on the right track. But this just might take the cake. Apparently wanting a quality, religious, and uniform-clad educational experience for my daughter makes me just shy of murderer caliber. No, really! Just one day after our lovely daughter began her lifelong learning journey in 4K Slate published an opinion piece that just might be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read.
So the awards Kyla’s school has won for academic excellence, their student graduation rate, their strong community presence… yeah, our kid doesn’t need any of that. We really need to send her to a mediocre-at-best public school instead. You know, for the benefit of other kids like five generations from now.
Remember, I am the firm believer in “whatever works for your family.” That means if you want to send your child to public school then by all means, send them! You’ve got every right to, and every right to be proud of your kids no matter what school you choose.
But some doofus from Slate is going to make me think twice about where we are sending our most precious commodity???!!! Because if we follow their theory then maybe, just maybe, the lousy public schools might get better eventually?
I think not. At least Daniel Doherty offers a sound rebuttal and something I can agree with.
