The national list is comprised of all charter and private schools. I can't pay 17,000 per year perRead More child. Sorry. I think they are doing great in our PS system. My husband went to public school from grade school through college while many of his coworkers went to fancy boarding schools. That might have been a savings for their parents. My brother went to a very expensive private boys high school and has nothing to show for it. I went to a huge public high school and have a masters degree and no student loans. Where you go to high school (or college for that matter) doesn't really impact anything unless you are trying for a political office later in life.

@ Concerned mother of 3 re: "My brother went to a very expensive private boys high school andRead More has nothing to show for it." I think your brother found out that he was probably not the right material for that school. You, as many of the commenters, here, are vainly trying to equate money spent on education with results attained. NO SUCH FORMULA EXISTS! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- @ John Dutton re: "Given the money that's been spent, it's time for a comment from the school board on this apparent failure." Again there is no formula connecting money spent with results attained. But more to your specific comment, no school district of which I am aware pays any attention to these media specials...I mean, unless they "luck-in" to a high placement on some list. Then its all "look at us!" Utter nonsense.

Going to a Catholic High School is a privilege and not a requirement. Catholic HS are exclusionary.Read More So they can expel a child for any reason with no parental recourse. If the Vatican interceded on behalf of an expelled student, the student would still be expelled. They are not open to all people, just a small slice of America. They are not representative of all. That is why they are excluded from national public school ratings. If Catholic High Schools don't play by the same rules as the public schools then they should be exclude from the national ratings. Anyway Regis and Chaminade don't even show up in the best 50 Catholic HS in US. These are the top Catholic HS in New York, All Hallows High School, Bronx Cathedral Preparatory Seminary, Elmhurst The Montfort Academy, Katonah

No matter what side you're on, we're all being played. I do not want Hillary any more than I want anyone else who wants to run and is in the mainstream political circuit. They are all the same.

United we stand, divided we fall, and we are a nation divided. It's the Federal government's playbook. Stop fighting. As Americans, we must unite to take back our liberty. It took only 5% of the population to fight against England and Tyranny in the American Revolution. What's it going to take here now? Love my country and want it to survive. It's not looking too good.

You cannot offer education to any person who has not had the foundation of paternal guidanceRead More beginning at birth. The maturation of the human entity revolves around initial care as an infant which means communication both oral and by tactile sensation. NURSING an infant is one of the MOST importatnt things that may be offered as a beginning point. Any amount of the process is good, but continuing for the better part of a year is best. TALKING to the infant is also paramount in awakening the receptiveness of the brain as the eyes develop and begin to truly see. Show and demonstrate any and all things. And continue through the pre-teen years. When ANY child is prepared in these ways he or she will be READY to begin secondary schooling and on into the college level and become a resposible, productive AMERICAN. Do as I did. Finish high school. Go to college & get a degree (I paid for myself). Be RESPONSIBLE for yourself. AND Be a GOOD PARENT.. PEPARE your child. THAT is YOUR JOB!!! And THANKS to my parents!!!
