Default Education

What sort of education did you have? Did you attend public school, private (was it religious?) school, or were you homeschooled? Did anyone go to boarding school?

Did you attend preschool/pre-k?

College? Private, public? Tech school?

What sort of schooling do/did your children receive, or do you plan on giving your children?

I went to public school and as a young child I was in daycare/preschool.

I did not go to pre school.

I attended the same public school till I graduated. We were rated above excellent or the highest it could be or whatever. I loved school. One of those crazy kids I would do high school again. I was in FFA and could change tractor oil etc. Best education ever!

Did community college for associates in nursing. Could have continued through the partnership there for my bachelors through akron but my work schedule did not allow it.

I am not getting my bachelors through Ohio University. Just decided I am likely going to go ahead and get my masters there as well.

I will not send the kids I do not yet have to any of the sub stranded schools around here. Which is why the house hunt is so awful I want them to have the experience I did in school. My mom is upset I will not home school but I am the breadwinner currently and school really made me who I am. I can't imagine not having grown up with the people I met there and experiences I had.

I went to pre-school when I was 4 at a really nice place (my little sister goes there now).

Then I began kindergarten and stayed at the same public elementary school until 5th grade.

I also went to public middle school, grades 6-8.

In high school, I moved to another county with my dad, and went to a public HS for grades 9-10 and then finished up 11-12 at the original HS that I was supposed to go to, had I not moved.

Went to community college after graduation, and am still there.

I went to private Catholic school for first and second grade, I was already suspicious of religion at that age and fought my mom hard to get me out. Public school until I transferred to an agricultural tech school in 9th and 10th until we moved and I finished out at public school.

I'm in community college now but am transferring to a four year university in Arizona.

I went to "pre-pre" school, preschool and kindergarten at a private school. Then first grade on I went to a public school. They were all California "distinguished" schools. I left high school at 16 because I hated it and started community collage (I technically dropped out of high school since I don't have a high school diploma). I got a BA from a California state school, my MA is from Western Kentucky University, and I am now doing a dual PhD at Indiana University. I doubt I'll ever have kids, but if I did I would send them to preschool, kindergarten etc. As long as the schools where I was living were good, I would send them to public school.

I went to preschool when I was 4 and then did all my schooling in public school in the same town. Now I attend the University of New England, should graduate next year.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!
