do you think one's economic stature should be a factor in selecting an elementary school? i remember my parents sending me to one of the most exclusive elementary schools at our place. however, we are not that well off and my parents really have to save for their kids' education. i mean, unlike my classmates who just use the change in their parents' purses to pay the tuition. however, with due respect to them, it had a negative effect on me. i always felt an outsider with my well to do classmates. now, my toddler is going to school and my husband wants him to go to the more expensive one while i just want the school right around the corner. am just worried that my child would also feel like an outsider.
