Little Zachary

Little Zachary was doing very badly in math. His parents
had tried everything: tutors, mentors, flash cards, special
learning centers. In short, everything they could think of to
help his math.

Finally, in a last ditch effort, they took Zachary down and
enrolled him in the local Catholic school. After the first day,
little Zachary came home with a very serious look on his face.
He didn't even kiss his mother hello. Instead, he went straight
to his room and started studying. Books and papers were spread
out all over the room and little Zachary was hard at work. His
mother was amazed.

She called him down to dinner. To her shock, the minute he was done,
he marched back to his room without a word, and in no time, he
was back hitting the books as hard as before. This went on for
some time, day after day, while the mother tried to understand
what made all the difference. Finally, little Zachary brought home
his report card. He quietly laid it on the table, went up to his
room and hit the books. With great trepidation, his Mom looked
at it and to her great surprise, little Zachary got an "A" in math.

She could no longer hold her curiosity. She went to his room and said,
" Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?"

Little Zachary looked at her and shook his head no.
"Well, then," she replied, " was it the books, the discipline, the structure,
the uniforms? WHAT WAS IT ALREADY"

Little Zachary looked at her and said, "Well, on the first day of
school when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they
weren't fooling around."

Did it do anything to enahnce your education or do you feel a public school was just as good. I've always wondered about that, what people think after they went to a private school.
