Her post doesn't come across that way to me. It just reads that she is aware that she could do it, but she wouldn't. It's just like I could have stolen from a shop but I didn't. Does it mean that I have the intention to steal? It's a terrible analogy but if coming back from overseas is an advantage that she could leverage on, why shouldn't she?
For people to have come back overseas and could use it as good reasons for a principal to relent, I see it as an advantage or privilege that I don't have. I wouldn't think that they play cheat or go by back door.
Agree with you, Rains. I didn't see her post as coming across that way either.
I agree re the returning from overseas thing too - if the kid is academically able to study in a good school, then why not? The kid has to go somewhere, and it wouldn't make sense, if they were academically inclined, to just put them in a 'lower' school and effectively 'penalise' them from coming back from overseas. If they can't do it and the parents insist, that's sad, but it's their choice.
From her posts, most of us can tell slmkhoo is a well-balanced parent. Certainly strikes me as a parent wise enough to know what's best for her kids, and not someone who blindly goes for the branded schools.
