If You Don’t At Least Try Your Local School, You May Be Part Of The Problem
Josh Michtom

Thank you. I get annoyed when I hear parents around me fret over sending their kids to public school, as if they were sending their kids to the guillotine. I actually take it as an insult, as I attended public school and — gasp! — survived.

Granted, sometimes I make fun of my public school system, like the fact that the cafeteria was more like an MMA ring than a place to eat lunch and that the PE teacher played old Richard Simmons videos. But my teachers were incredible. During college and grad school, I had a side gig helping high school students with their college entrance essays, and I can tell you that public school can be an advantage. You have far more to talk about than a private school student who has had the exact same experience as all the other private school kids.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
