In a previous topic, Joan from midtown mentioned that she was a San Mateo high school teacher with children in the PA school district. I'd be interested in hearing Joan's and other people's perspectives on the differences in the educational experiences for children in the PA school district vs. other districts in the area. Are there any readers here who have moved to or out of PA with their children who have seen first hand the differences between the different districts?
I suppose that it can be a delicate balance between wanting kids to get exposure to the "real world" and not becoming too insular in the privileged PA "bubble" that some here have referred to while also providing them with a stimulating environment with motivated, academically-oriented peers. Just how good or bad are things in other districts relative to PA?
