My husband and I have been having conversations about Ellie's schooling these days. She spent two years in Montessori school before switching to public school this year and we have definitely noticed a difference in her education. In essence, it has slowed dramatically. Whereas she used to come home excited about the new and interesting things she learned that day, she now comes home with very simple assignments that offer no challenge and seem to mostly bore her. She is getting frustrated with school and my husband and I both agree that she might be better off back in a Montessori school.

The fact that we are on the same page regarding her education certainly makes the final decision a lot easier. But for some parents, this isn't the case. Paul McCartney and his estranged wife Heather Mills are apparently at odds over whether their four-year-old daughter Beatrice should attend public or private school. Obviously, money isn't the issue for them, but rather the type of education she will receive. According to this article, Paul thinks private school "messes up" children and wants his daughter to attend public school. After all, his three grown children were in public school and turned out just fine. Mills, however, wants Bea in private school.

For McCartney and Mills, the battle over their daughter's education is just one more stumbling block on the road to a final divorce agreement. In the end, I don't know how you settle that. They both have a right and a responsibility to do what they think is best for their child and it is unfortunate that they don't agree on what that is. Have you found yourself in a similar situation? How did you work it out?
