This may be the wrong area, but a number of families received registered letters today, from our Christian school, stating that we all have to pay out tuition in full within 30 days ... if not they are sending us to a collection agency.
This is a mind-blowing shock to many of us, as we were set up on payment schedules — that both we and the school agreed to, and now that the school finds itself in $5000,000 worth of debt, they are bullying us to pay it all in 30 days ... no meetings prior to this registered letter, no phone calls-no emails.
I could remind them to read 1 Corinthians 6:1-11, but I think that will fall on deaf ears. In our case, the years 2004/2005 found us stricken with my mothers passing, us adding on to our home so my father could live here and continue living a quality life, my diagnosis of MS-and the loss of my career, and my husband's permanent layoff at a factory that had provided medical benefits (no more MS medications) ... all that loss in a short time certainly hit like a ton a bricks. So we spoke to the school and worked out what we could afford to pay and they were fine with that ... until today. Other families have it much worse-one family lost their son to cancer 2 years ago, and incurred a great deal of debt with machines medicines, etc., but the family has been doing their best to repay as well.
Any ideas? They cannot get blood from a stone, but to do this is such a cold and cowardly way? I would appreciate any advice/feedback anyone could give me.
