[ - ] Clinton vs MAT. Anyone have kids at either? What is the teaching like (progressive/traditional)? What are the kids like academically? HW? Social scene? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Very different vibe. Clinton is mostly girls with an emphasis on arts and writing (and very little in the way of sports). It is solidly mc and mostly white. MAT appeals to boys and puts an emphasis on math, music and gym as well as art (and has the best sports program in the city). It is very diverse, with nearly 80% of dcs qualifying for free lunch.

What do you think the social scene is like? And, do you think the incoming kids have similar grades and test scores? I couldn't get a feel for those things on the tours. Also, they were both vague on homework. I'm assuming that means it isn't too bad (1 hr?). [ Reply | More ]

In 6th all schools are about the same. 30 minutes to an hour or so a night except when projects are due. I think Clinton has more of a "scene" than MAT does. [ Reply | More ]

For a school that bills itself as having an arts emphasis, I didn't see much going on in any category, tbh. Not that there was nothing, but no more than what happens at any good school. I do appreciate that he kids aren't overloaded with hw, but I'm not convinced that balance can last in the new high school, if they're determined to complete all the Regents requirements in the first two years and then have kids do the IB in the second two years?

[ - ] Opinions please: friends hosting Thanksgiving, everyone bringing something (we're doing the turkey and stuffing). All have just been asked, in addition to 'food assignments,' to bring two bottles of wine. Seems to me the hosts should be providing at least the wine if others are basically bringing the entire dinner. Thoughts? 36 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Not necessarily. If the hosts are cleaning & prepping the kitchen & dining room, providing dishes & serving plates/bowls, providing the kitchen to cook/re-heat/refrigerate everyone's contributions, and cleaning up after everything is over, they are doing as much or more than the person bringing the turkey.

[ - ] Just found out that we have been asked to be on beverage duty for Thanksgiving. I was expecting to make a side dish and a dessert, plus bring a bottle of wine. There will be 20 people at the dinner. I really don't want to supply all the alcohol for that many people, it seems like it is asking a lot. I don't want to complain too much because it isn't my side of the family.

IMO, you can bring 4-6 bottles of wine and you can find decent wine for no more than $15/bottle (less for white IMO) and a few bottles of sparkling water. (If there are beer drinkers, then 4 bottles and a 12-pack.) That shouldn't break the bank. It probably won't end up costing much more than making 2 dishes and a bringing one better bottle of wine. Many families do holidays more pot-luck style. If the wine runs out, oh well, hostess should ahve planned better. [ Reply | More ]

PP I agree that people should be involved, but any organization has more active members, as well as less-active members.

That's the whole point. Polygamy is "a refiner's fire" that forces women to overcome jealousy and pettiness and become humble servants of the Lord. It theoretically forces men to be fair and evenhanded.

Here's the dilemma: when you send a kid for religious education, you are essentially saying this is what we believe in or we wouldn't be educating in this way. The nature of religion is that you must have faith that your beliefs are true and therefore others cannot be true or "as true." Not difficult to see how a kid says something like this given the setting, no matter how PC and inclusive the education tries to be. The problem is not with the child, but with faith-based religious education. [ Reply | More ]
