Re: Get your education questions answered

"for supposedly superior teaching and smaller classes" The class sizes are smaller. Not supposedly smaller. Just actually smaller. I don't believe that the private school teachers are "better" - in many cases I am sure that the individual teachers are stronger in state - they have to be. BUT, and t...

Re: Bullying at local school

How horrible for you.

Not at Honeywell but I've been through it elsewhere.

It's taken REALLY seriously by the school - they'll be very very sensitive to any bullying issues.
