I hated school and yep, another one of those "poor kids" at a rich school senario's. Not that others were bad to me really, but I just always felt a misfit and the school and I, really didn't match at all.
I remain quite angry about all the opportunities lost to me becuase of that stupid private "exculsive" school...truth be told? I woudl have been more suited to the local public which probably would have nurtured what I was actually good at and capable of, instead of trying to fit the square peg into the round hole
Probably why I am SO against private schools these days, or at least, I'm very suss...I think a lot of parents pay a fortune for private schooling becuase THEY think it's best, simply becuase it's expensive and private...yet, it's not what is best for the child at all.
Hb and I are determined that our girls will go to teh most suitable school for them and which will nurture and capture their abilities and talents and most importantly, be a happy place for them. If that's private, we'll pay it, but we won't automatically assume tha tprivate is better...becuase I KNOW it's not.
