L.A.'s private schools sent out acceptance letters lsat week, meaning plenty of parents will be facing a difficult choice - figuring out whether to send their kid to a private school or a public one.

Michael Godsey, a public school teacher who wrote about his own experience for the Atlantic, said it was a choice that was especially difficult.

But ultimately, he decided to send his child to private school.

"I'm really proud of what I do, and I'm really proud of who I work with, and I think we give a great product. I just think, for a child [who] really gets into what they're doing and who wants a culture in which she's is surrounded by students that are like that, I want to put her in that environment," he said.
