Save the Public Schools

public schools, school system , good public schools, save money , tutor children

If you watch the news each night, you might be lead to believe that we have a educational crisis in our country. This idea is true, but it is not true everywhere. I know there are many schools that are struggling, and there are many children who suffer as a result, but I also know that there are still come great public schools out there, and that we haven’t completely lost hope for a great education. My husband and I live where we do because we know that the school system here is one of the best in our state.

We didn’t have children when we moved here, but I was determined that my child would go to good public schools, and that I would never make them move from their friends. Part of this was because of the trauma I suffered from moving around a lot as a child, and partially because I think my education could have been better. I am fine, but I want to give my children all that they can have in the way of a good education. My daughter begins school next fall, and I have no qualms about sending her to public schools.

I know not everyone can afford to move so that they can be closer to really great public schools, but if that is an option, it might be something to consider. You can save money for them to go to college, but if they don’t have a decent educational system while young, they aren’t going to make it to college. Though not all of the public schools that are located in less populated areas are good, many of them are. This is why we were happy to leave the larger city where we once lived, and are now happily rooted in a smaller city with great schools.

If you think your public schools could use some help, you don’t have to give money in order to try to make things better. One thing you can do is volunteer your time. You could be an aid in a classroom, or you could offer to tutor children who are falling behind. You might not be able to save the integrity of the public schools in your area, but you might make a difference in the lives of a few children, and that might be a bigger gift than you could ever realize.
