OK, let's introduce a new term. 

"Illogical to me." Roughly defined as, "Given the current state of

I don't. But that doesn't mean I can't add to what the schools I choose

I'm too busy making a living and undoing the damage already done to my
kids. Non-working hours. 8pm to 6 am, monday through friday. I don't
think many school kids are going to be available.
