Hello all. I currently reside in Georgia with an elementary school aged son. Due to my work we move every few years, which is terrible on a child's education. So far, I'm two for two of having to move in the middle of a semester.

Additionally, I'm extremely fed up with how the schools have treated my child. He started in pre-k reading 3rd and 4th grade books and 2nd grade math, yet the schools have in no way been receptive to his abilities. He's tested well, but I'm finding the "GT" programs are something of a joke. They refuse to move him up in grade even though he's shown the scholastic ability, and have even somewhat punished him for being ahead of his peers.

At this point, my wife and I have had enough of this nonsense and are fairly committed to change our son's educational situation. Due to my work and her knowledge, we're leaning heavily towards an online private school. I'd love to hear from people who have had experience with them. Thanks in advance and look forward to picking at brains from time to time.
