I don't have an easy answer to that one, but I can relate..

Older daughter, Autism Spectrum (NVLD), HORRIBLE experience in public school, we're looking at a private specialized school for kids with learning problems. She should be a great fit. Very expensive. We're looking into funding currently..

Younger daughter, gifted, skipped a grade, very advance for her age. Getting totally under-served at the same school that could not serve our older daughter.

I think about the older one, how well she could do if she had teachers that understood how to teach her, and without the stress that she deals with every day due to bullying.

I think about the younger one, how fantastic it would be for her to be in a room of kids that were as bright as she was, and if there were no limits placed on how much she could learn or achieve.

Very difficult choices. I'm looking for a 2nd job.
