In Macomb, a debate on schooling

No fair to compare

Re: Ingrid Jacques’ June 12 column, “For the kids? Not if money’s at stake”: Less than 30 Anchor Bay attend this school? This school has rigorous requirements for accepting students? The author clearly admires the statistics that come from this school. But the school clearly does not labor under the same rules as public schools. They can refuse students (public schools are open). They have small class sizes (not 30 or more to a class). The parents are involved because of the money they spend. This is apples to oranges and totally unfair to hard working public school teachers.

Worth the effort

The International Academy of Macomb is the best school around. We travel from Warren to have our son attend. He is very motivated, has learned so much this year and is completing his freshman year with a 4.0. I would recommend this school to anyone who is willing to put out the extra effort.
