Just wanted folks to list some differences between schools in the city, and those in the country. When I was in school, I went to what would be considered a "city school". We live in a rural area now, and my son goes to a very small country school (preK - 8th with about 300 students). Let's just say that his school is much different than the one I attended. For instance, for show-and-tell one year, he brought his knife collection. He had to keep it in the office until it was time for the presentation. But, could you image that happening outside of a rural community? Another thread here talked about how kids aren't allowed to bring their chicks to the school. At my son's school, around easter time, one of the teachers sells chicks from her classroom. The most popular color for clothes seems to be "camo". Anyway, just wanted to know what other differences other have noticed between "city schools" and "country schools".
