Roller Coaster

I never knew that deciding whether or not to put my kids into an accelerated classroom would come with so much drama. I talk to one person and I feel up, then I get information from another and down I go.

I will be meeting with the 5th grade ALL teacher next week and I'm hoping that will help me settle my decision. I can't even put into words the emotions I'm feeling: concern, frustration, anger, helplessness, etc.

I had a dear friend's father volunteer to tutor my children in Math, this summer and/or next school year. I've had people tell me that they would never participate in such a program, because they don't want it to go to the kid's head. Some people have said that they don't think it matters one way or another. If that's true why do I feel that people have such strong opinions?

I promise I'll post on something more interesting next why I ripped all my hair out in the last two weeks. Yea, that'd be interesting.
