Question: What is the difference between a "Paul Revere" and a "Miraloma"?
The Miraloma-type schools seem great when I walk around them. They have nice facilities and people, lots of happy faces, plenty of enrichment activities, parent involvement, et cetera, But are they really better than the "Paul Reveres"? I wonder if it is simply that at schools like Paul Revere, I (an upper middle class Anglo) feel out of place. The kids and adults look different than me and speak a different language. Is Miraloma a "good school" merely because it is a familiar place? Is Paul Revere equally good?
