NP: I live in the city and my kids go to great public schools as well. Whether or not the privates are "better" isn't an issue for me, as they're definitely getting a solid education. It's all perspective. No stress here! [ Reply | More ]

well, people choose to compete to get into tt privates. but you could just go to a good zoned public, many people do this. its only hyper competitive if thats your personality coming out. true though, real estate is a bit pricey. so its not really a tournament, its just an expensive area [ Reply | More ]

For the Democrats, not much. For the Republicans, it will thin the herds in that one or more of the candidates with the fewest votes will drop out. Popular belief is that it will hurt Trump because most people who would support him already do. Very few people are voting for Carson, Kasich, Bush, etc. have Trump as their second choice, so once their candidate drops out, they will jump to either Cruz or Rubio, but not to Trump.

Sometimes you can do a quick care bag which is just a reusable grocery shopper with things that don't need to be refrigerated. You can be a little creative, but keep it simple. One example might be a loaf of bread, a brick of velveeta, a few cans of tomato soup. Or bread, canned tuna, small jar of mayonnaise with another kind of soup. The whole idea is just to make something easier for them so they aren't worrying about shopping etc. Even a card with a pizza menu and a few twenties can be perfectly fine. [ Reply | More ]

Academically he's doing fine at BWL its the social scene that's the issue. Looking for something with more of an arts program and less sporty.... He's in 9th now so would look for a trransfer for 11th grade. Not saying we'd do it for sure but looking at possibilities. Any ideas welcome.... Thanks! 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Academically he's doing well. He has tutors and that helps. The harder part is that he's used to being spoon fed and you have to do a lot more for yourself in a ms school. It's a stretch but as I told him its better to get used to doing it now so when he gets to college he will have acclimated. That doesnt mean its easy but he is doing it... [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] s/o New SAT. First read from students taking the practice test showed that the new format actually favors Asian students in the following way: (1) new test eliminates vocabularies used mostly by upper class whites (2) new math test is less straight forward and more time constrainted, favoring strong math students with advanced problem solving skills (3) longer reading passages favor students with better focus, concentration, and discipline in organized thinking (4) essay format is now evidence based, not creative or fictional based. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
