In Reply to: How to deal with 11th grader who wants to go to Public School.. for social reasons. posted by Deborah in CA on July 21, 2009 at 1:36 pm:

one thing to consider is what exactly the "social reasons" are. When I talked to my daughter about why she wanted to go to school, a lot had to do with fears about how she would handle college - she'd be away from home for the first time AND dealing with large numbers of peers who came from a different upbringing, for the first time. I could see her point - she wanted to "practice" being out in the world, while still having the "safe haven" of home to work things out in. Seen in that light, we made the decision to try letting her go to school. One factor in that is that she does have nice friends already who are in the school, and one teacher there is a friend of ours. We decided it is better for her to do this than to go 600 miles away with little preparation.

A lot of your decision would, I think, rest with your daughters' social and decision-making skills, maturity, and plans for after high school.
