Ok, so my Son is 4 years old. His mother and I are not together and have a so so relationship as parents. This will soon be changing since I will soon be living in the same small town and not almost 2 hours away.
Something we have talked about and disagreed on repeatedly is the subject of public verse's private schooling. She is Catholic and I must admit I really do not know much about that religion. I hold the belief that my son will use his own reasoning and judgement to decide what or even if he is going to practice a religion, when he is old enough that is. I do not want to push any religion on him. Oh and btw, I am not religious at all.
I also do not know much about public verses private schooling either. What I do know is that the only private school in our area is catholic and costs a considerable amount of money. I went to public schools and the schools in our area are good compared if he were to go to a public school in the Twin Cities.
This is not really a money issue, granted I am far from rich but will work however many jobs/hours I have need to provide a good balanced education for Junior. I didn't have it..he will.
I guess my question is; is it worth subjecting him to a religous sided education? Are private schools that much better? Pretty much anything info on the subject would be greatly apprecitated.
