    I also started school at JW Faulk and was rezoned to Vermilion Elementary, which was a new school at the time. From Vermilion to La Rosen Elementary and then to NP Moss. Attend Paul Breaux in Middle School and then to Northside. I've never attended private school. I've experienced both private and public schools, both have good teachers. The main difference is the discipline in the classroom. And that is the bottom line.

    For my two oldest, spending the money on private school was the best invest I could have made considering the school zones back then and the over crowding. My oldest graduated from Teurlings and my second wanted to attend Comeaux HS with her friends in the neighborhood. The difference the way both were advised and prepared for college was night & day.
    It's the same thing I said about comparing football recruits to baseball recruits. You are going to get students in a better situation period at private schools...you would expect them to have less discipline issues. Then size difference between Public and Private. TCH has an enrollment of 782 for 17-18...Comeaux 1,934. Of course college prep is going to be watered down when you have to nearly triple enrollment, also more kids, more discipline issues.

    My point still is...unless you are sending your child to a private school out of NECESSITY...the money is not worth it. I could send my child to Fatima, but then I would be spending out of the nose for something I could get for living in the Woodvale District.

    Could it be that the reason they are in a better situation is because of parental involvement at home as well as at school? IMHO, education starts at home. If education is expected and "emphasized" at home through words AND actions by the parents, chances are the student will live up to those expectations. If education is not emphasized at home, I would think only kids that are highly self motivated on their own would succeed consistently in the class room.

    Kids don't get to select what situation they get brought up in. If only they had bootstraps for newborns.

    We got one living near us. Set up live radar in our neighborhood, electronic radar trailer, live cop watching for people running stop signs (caught one), tried to get speed bumps. 25 mph neighborhood, can't honestly say I've ever seen anyone speeding thru here. Neighborhood with multiple cul-de-sacs. Didn't meet even half the volume criteria for bumps, your tax dollars at work.

    Issue was his kids played in the street. Not a major road at all, so used taxpayers instead of telling his kids to get out the street. Bad part is, he's actually a nice guy.

    How can we expect our kids to learn to compete in life when their principals and their own teachers are not willing to compete? There are no longer any State Champions in Louisiana High School sports. There are only champions of classes (and there are way too many of those)!!!

    What if you had not participated in the white flight from the northside? Then would you be sending your kids to a private school?

    To be classified as "white flight", I'd have to have owned property on the Northside. I never have. My parent's still live there. So...there goes that. How old is this damn thread?

    Green flight is more appropriate.

    huumm, know any educational "experts"?
