Old school...

New school...

007

Everyone is into the second week of public school. So far, so good. No disrespect to the old school, which we were all crazy about, but I just love that I can send them off looking like kids, not missionaries.

Our cable modem was down from last Thursday to Monday night, and my thumbs are cramped from having to use my BlackBerry for all things internet-y. But it's back, and so am I. Using all ten fingers to post something later today.

what I love is how completly different they look from one pic to the next. How do you think they'll like not having uniforms?

I hope for their sake that, unlike me, their Long Hair Episode doesn't end up immortalized in their school's lobby award case. Nothing quite like running into the kids of friends who can make fun of your hair a decade after the fact.

Welcome to the rag-tag world of public schools. They look very happy.

We don't start until next week. It is a bit surreal to read about other cities starting already!

You know, no one school is better than any other one school. Each has its crappy "I'm just in this for the summer vacation" teachers and each has its "I love kids, I love teaching and the summer vay-cay ain't half bad either" teachers. In each, students can learn or slack off. Plus, public school (usually) has the added no uniform bonus and the definite no tuition bonus.

that's really all. Oh, that and a disproportionate number of Phillips Andover (@ $30,000+/yr) grads go on to UMass Amherst, which, while a fine school, is not really the reason you spend $30000+/yr on a high school education.
