    THE PRIVATE SCHOOLS LIKE MANY CHURCHES ARE NOT PULLING IN THE SAME AMOUNT OF REVENUE SENSE ALL OF THE PLANTS SHUT DOWN. IF THERE’S ENOUGHT MONEY IN THE BUDGET TO ATTEND PRIVATE SCHOOLS, FINE AND DANDY. BUT IF THE BUDGET IS NOT UP TO STANDARD, DON’T FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE COMMITTEED SIN BY SENDING YOUR KIDS TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
