Before I put my children in the other district I attended my districts school board and pta meetings and I always left those meetings angry. There were board members who acted like they were interested in the school curriculum but who voted against every upgrade in courses, books or technology but whose children attended religious or private schools who were always issued up-graded books every year and until it was outlawed, were issued very expensive calculators. The hypocrisy was blatant but no one saw. I tried to work within the system but being a product of that same system rather than a transplant like most others made me realize that I was confronting those who were responsible for my child's education and well being when I was not around. I did not want my children to have to work out the anger and frustration years later as I did. Yes, I knew more about my district than the norm because not only did I attend school there, I was born there and I worked there. I got my children out. I say, do whatever you need to do to assure your children a chance to succeed. If it means giving your friend your child's tax write-off and/or having a notarized letter, do it.
