This is really just kind of a vent, maybe more of an anecdote-a can-you-believe-a-parent-said-this kind of thing. I have a child in my class who is going to another school next year. No problem. Parent made a big deal out of explaining why though-he was really happy here, mom was happy with the progress he's made however, she wants to hang out with a better class of parent! It's not even for the child to be able to hang out with this better class of friends, she wants to have parents over for dinner, book club, etc and doesn't feel like these parents would be suitable because the school is in a low SES area. hmy: I was just floored, didn't even know how to respond. It's just the sweetest bunch of kids and I think the families are really nice. Silly me, I guess I'm just not paying enough attention to what they wear or what kind of car they drive! Isn't that a great example to be setting for your kid?
