Cost of private schools through the roof

Private school tuition for the DC area just keeps on going up. According to the Washington Post, some of the private schools in this area will go up $26,000.

The average cost in Fairfax County per student is $12,917. Hopefully, No Child Left Behind will be amended so it will not screw Title I schools. That's where the real shortfall will be in 3 years.

FYI: Private schools are not attached to NCLB. So if you can afford to send your kids there, you're golden. If you cannot, well I hope your kid whether they have LD, ED, or MR can pass the SOLs.
