My husband and I have the means to send our children to private school. It would by no means be a cake walk and we’d seriously have to change our spending habits. We both went to public school and think we got a pretty good education. My question is, how do you justify spending $28,000 – $45,000 per year per child?
I realize that most private schools are better (if not far superior) to the area public schools, but by $30,000?
My husband is a stat geek and he cannot quantify the cost. In his words, ‘unless there’s one teacher for 200 2nd graders and that one “teacher” is a bus driver by trade, I don’t get it’.
Someone in the know please provide clarity to our situation.
