What separates private school from public school IYO?

What school memories stand out about your own schooling?  Did you attend public schools or "private"?

What did you want to be when you grew up?

As a side, What's your weather like today? :)

Oh, I am laughing, Bord!  I'd hope you'd do the same on your vacation, but apparently you prefer to spend it with us.  Sorry your husband isn't as engaging.

Their.  As in 'those belonging to the school administration".  Hence a possessive.  Hence, their. 

And I'm sorry they failed you so completely.

Also?  :::snicker:::

Hate to break it to you, but "their" is correct.  She's talking about the accomodations of the schools.  It's correctly possessive.

Exactly, Jamblessed!  What we both take as read, seems to escape Bord!

Thank you for your answers thardy.  I was lucky, Mom and dad believed in faith based education but dad was also a public school teacher so we respected a lot of differences there too.

Yes, Jambles, I have a PhD in religious history, and I teach Catholic history. It's not that hard to verify, should you want to do so.
