The other day I was talking to a friend about schools in SF. She sends her kids to private school though she has lots of friends in public. She started to tell me about her friends' remarks against private schools. "They'll say these things right to my face and they know I send my kids to private school." And then she posed the question, "Why do so many parents in San Francisco have chips on their shoulders?" Of course, this works both ways. Public school parents have told me about comments from private school parents. It seems that parents are quick to judge the other side (anyone who reads this blog knows that).
Anyway, I'd like to throw the question out there: Do SF parents have chips on their shoulders? If so, why?
