...to public school.
Yeah, right. The kid sounds like he was generally a disruptive little bastard. So? One good spanking in the Principal's office would have cleared that bullshit right up. Whoops! Can't do that.
You hand your five year old to a stranger that you maybe see a half dozen times a year, you get what you deserve. Too bad the 5 year old gets affected by it. Do I get stressed out, and say rude things to my kids? Duh! But I can hold them in my lap later, and tell them how Daddy is sorry, and we can discuss it in depth, and I don't have 30 other kids sucking my brains out.
And then they go to homeschool. And learn. Not finger-painting bullshit, or outlining their hands to make a turkey, but the Four R's. And then some. Sure, they do crafts...on their own time. We encourage it. But when you go into school mode, cut the bullshit. The wages of sin is bed.
The second best choice is a church school, and NOT Catholic. Taught by all women. What's the worst thing that can happen...they get laid? Hopefully not Nattie?
You send your kids to school with garbage (most kids today) and that is what you get out of it.
