Jafta will be starting kindergarten in the fall, and I am having a really hard time figuring out where he will attend school. I am a big proponent of public school on a number of levels, and I’ve always been vocal about wanting our kids in the neighborhood school. I found this to be a great ideology to hold while my kids were too small to attend school, but now that it’s MY kid who is old enough to be the next student at the Title I down the street, my principles are faltering. I’ve been trying to keep an open mind. I’ve come up with many a justification for the low test scores, and I’ve ignored the rumor mill about the sub-par education that might be awaiting him. I decided to go to the school’s website and find out if there was some sort of open house I could attend. I’ve copied and pasted the info I found:

Kindergarden Registration for 2009-2010 begins at the end of March. For more information please attend our Kindergarden Informaion Night on March 25th, or call the Office.And that just about sums up the problem, doesn’t it?
