This from a reader:
We applied to public and private and in light of all the budget cuts, I'm a little worried about public. could you start a hot topic that would be about how parents are feeling about private schools and how the process went this year? I know a lot of parents gearing up to do public and private for next year and I know I could learn a lot from other parents and offer some tips also I do not know anything about what happens march 18, or whenever we hear if we get in anywhere and I'd love some perspective on that and how it works. Thanks so much for your great blog.
