Agreed, my children have never stepped foot inside a school within the school district we live in. We choose the other route and couldn't be happier. Both are athletes and excel in sports and the school district we live in would love to have them as part of the athletic programs in the district. Interesting to think they were "poached" from something they were never part of. Where does arrogance like that come from?
