Across the seas in the US and Europe parents are gearing up for back to school… in South Africa that is a few months away but the school debate seems to be a constant in my life – everywhere I go there are conversations happening about “which school are you sending little X to?” and “have you applied at X school” and “are you choosing private, government or homeschooling” or “single sex vs co-ed” etc etc….ad nauseum. It does become an all consuming topic among moms with a certain age bracket of kids.
It would seem I am not alone in the debates I have about schooling my children so here are some interesting reads on the topic. Let me know if you come across any other useful ones! Enjoy!
