    and attended a public school for a year after having attended private schools for 11 grades.  

    i have four sons and i taught at their school in san antonio.  my counterpart teachers in the public schools were mostly amazed at what we were allowed to do and how much the parents were involved with the children.

    maybe the gene pool comment was over the top, but, i live in a neighborhood where everyone tries to "save me" and it isn't only annoying, it's maddening on weekends when they come to my door with petitions about taking evolution, or sex education and even, on one occasion accurate history out of the schools in this district.
