Our family also enjoyed attending an inexpensive, small, none sectarian Christian School, & a small private public school. Both schools were excellent, & a breath of fresh air. When Harris' Torys decided to dispense with art, music, & creative English within the Public System, private schools provided a good alternative. Our interest in these schools was more of an atmospheric & educational nature that a faith issue. (With only 10 to 15 students per class, students learned more easily & had more enjoyment of learning.)

'Making do' isn't always the worst thing in the world. It often provides opportunity for creative solutions, & a more sharing & family oriented culture with the classroom.

We are not wealthy people, but by cutting back on other things, we afforded these schools. We were also pleased that with lack of Provincial funding also came lack of Provincial Ministry input/interference on the time spent on classroom activities.

Sometimes you Do get what you pay for!

I absolutely support the presence of private schools that are primarily Education based & applaud their efforts, but I didn't & don't expect the tax payer to fund them. If a school is primarily faith based (will not take teachers, staff or students who are not part of that faith, etc.) it should lose it's right to any Government funding.
