Its hard to imagine how the most precious, adored, angelic angel on a pedestal that is the average under 10 year old to its parents, can become something expelled from the Exorcist once a teen.

Turns out her husband is an Aussie and they lived in Parkdale, Vic for 12 years. They returned to the UK because she said she didn't like the schools there and thinks her kids are better off in school here.

Doesn't really add up though, if that were the only reason, surely you'd just change suburbs?

I would be inclined to agree with her from what I have seen. Changing suburb doesn't fix the underlying problems.

Our two Sons say the same, both of them have been educated in both Aus and the UK and say the UK system is far better from their own experience.
