It is an ill thought out plan in D15. It should be diverse as is, there are no zoned MS and district is diverse. They need to look at why the best schools don’t reflect the district population and fix that rather than basically getting rid of having schools for high achieving kids. [ Reply | More ]

UMC white public school parents are pro public school and diversify as long as they have easier access to the best schools. Once that access is challenged like taking away single test entry where their kids have a big edge or mixing in other diverse groups than that all goes out the window. Then everything is unfair.

NYC schools are very segregated and there is a push to desegregate. Every school is also creating an equity team to try to help students within their schools succeed. I am in favor of it. I was just at a district 3 middle school meeting where the superintendent was saying that she wants to take the elementary school off the middle school application because there is implicit bias against certain schools in the district. A woman from a certain good" school in the district said "she needs to know which schools the students are coming from because grades and behavior are not the same in certain schools.' I could not believe she openly said that. There is so much bias. It is disgusting. [ Reply | More ]

One is my DH's sister, who is still subsidized by my ILs at the age of 32 and whiney, vapid, not at all grateful (she complains how tired she is from work). My ILs pay her rent (she just shacked up with her boyfriend and I wouldn't be surprised if my ILs pay 3/4 of their rent), she has zero budget. My other SIL is married to DH's brother, and I am very fond of her but envious that her parents still help her/them out with most of their living expenses (preschool, childcare since her parents live far, furniture). My DH has too much pride to accept any handouts and my parents probably expect me to give them money. I feel like a dolt to even feel this way - DH and I both work very hard and earn in the low 300s, clean our own place, try to instill good work ethic in our DCs and the importance of being a good person. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Their taxi drivers have to pass a pretty hard exam. They know all the streets. Unlike here in the states, where there are almost non-existent standards for what is considered lower class labor - which becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. It's hard to respect a handyman when he doesn't actually have any verifiable skillsets. Vocational school and accredation is still a thing in Europe and those folks can be proud of their chosen profession and the work they put in to attaining their positions. [ Reply | More ]

Most of the people posting don’t seem to have spent a lot of time in London recently. It’s proximity for traveling would be a draw for me, but on the rest, it matches up to nyc. Same dirtiness, crowds, expensive housing, etc. [ Reply | More ]

ITA. It is a very expensive city. Its proximity to Europe would be the only real difference for me. NYC is very ethnically diverse and the level of cleanliness is the same [ Reply | More ]

I like the housing better (houses instead of apartments) and the parks and it isn’t really as expensive for day to day living (all brits who move to the US agree the US is more expensive which is the opposite of what people here claim) [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Looking at the post below about the ds compares his apartment to what his richer friends have reminded me. When my ds was in third grade we picked up a classmate of his after school because his mom had an emergency. He walked into our apartment, looked around and said, This is the worst apartment I have ever seen! 18 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I've had one of those. It was a girl from our building and we had looked at all of the apartments when we bought, so I know the square footage of every apartment. She walked in and said, "Oh, our apartment is bigger than yours." I said, "No, it isn't, but yours is nice, too." [ Reply | More ]

We once had a friend of dc come in and survey our apt and say " oh, this is not at all what I was expecting." DC's are still friends and our apt is still yucky. [ Reply | More ]

DD switched from public to private just in time for all the birthday parties to become sleepovers, and I'm a bit nervous about this. Not sure if a bunch of private school girls will be mean about our "cozy" apartment with its one bathroom. Fingers crossed... [ Reply | More ]

My dd had a friend over that said "my apt is much bigger than yours." We drove to a pool and she said her mom's car is so much nicer. She said our rooms are so much bigger because ours is a pre-war. [ Reply | More ]
