Re: “A Very Frightening Story From BASIS San Antonio

My sons went to BASIS Oro Valley the first year it was open. We took them out after their 3rd quarter. Their homework experience was similar and the stress was causing behavior and physical problems. They returned to public school and found it undisiciplined, unchallenging, and pretty much the opposite of BASIS. Sports, music, and art again became part of their lives. Now they are out of Cross and at CDO we are quite happy with the curriculum and quality of education but I think they learned more at BASIS in 7 months than 3 years at Cross. Something in between the two extremes would have been nice. I believe in public school conceptually, but we have taken away too much of the school's authority to discipline and separate students by ability. BASIS, on the other hand, is driven to churn out only the kids who can deal with a high stress level and complete lack of any childhood but school. It is a horrible place to be a child.
