I think this is generally true. And of course, Sarah's problem with the
bully may be an example of the "one bad apple" syndrome. I'm generally
satisfied with what our public schools are doing. I wish they would
actually teach more, though. I still maintain that our knowledge base from
the sixties high schools was greater than what is geneally taught in public
school, now.

One reason I agreed (and actually wanted) my daughter and her family to move
to the family home was the small town schools. They moved from a
metropolitan/urban area, and at 57, I would have been afraid to walk down
their high school hall, unaccompanied. I need to just deal with this one
little twit and get back to my volunteer section rehearsals with the
woodwinds at the high school. <g>
