When we had to move to the inner city for my husband's job, I knew that I didn't want my kids to go to public school. Instead of exposing them to low rated schools and a substandard education, I decided to investigate private religious schools. I was a little nervous to have my kids taught by nuns and clergy, but when we toured the schools, I was shocked. The kids looked happy to be there, and the curriculum was rigorous and interesting. I knew that my kids would be happier when their education was planted in faith. Check out this blog that discusses religious schools.
