Single mom invests in private school to avoid redistricting

I have paid for private schools (CFA and now MGCS) for the past seven years as I do believe I get what I pay for. What I buy is a team of educators who communicate with each other grade to grade, in order to bring out the best in my children. An environment that is stable, constant and structured promotes effective learning. A child in one school establishes a history with that school and its teachers and doesn't have to deal with new surroundings year over year. Children who struggle with classes are provided extra assistance to bring them up to speed, not redistricted to another school. A sense of security and consistent teamwork goes a long way in child development.
It seems to me that because we are not doing our homework to project class volumes of neighborhoods or investing in public school classrooms and most importantly, more teachers to specifically work with struggling students, the school board has decided that shuffling children from school to school and cutting teachers is going to solve the problems at hand.
