Hi all,

Hope everyone is doing well. For those who have school aged children, I am wondering what the concensus is on the current and future levels of tuition. In the NYC area, the cost for jewish day schools seems to be in the 15-25k range (potentially higher). Even for just two kids, this would seem to be unaffordable for all but the very highest earners. Is the situation similar in other parts of the country? What are you and your peers doing if anything (changing schools, having fewer kids, all of the above?) I asked some catholic friends for a variant perspective; the said they pay $2-3k and wouldn't even consider sending if the cost was over $7k.

I have read about some proposed solutions, but it just seems the situation is unsustainable.

sorry to be glum, but curious as to your experiences.
