Public school or private school? Which one is better for your child?

Many of us have asked ourselves these questions, perhaps feeling that the grass is truly greener on the other side of the fence. While the public school system remains the “default” of sorts for all students attending classes, some parents reject the notion that private school is best, choosing to have their children educated in public programs. Conversely, there are many parents who feel that only by going the route of private education will they see their kids succeed via access to what is perceived to be better educational tools, teachers and facilities.

So how about you? What do you think? Is private school better than public school, or vise versa? Why? Answer in the comments below :)

Private or Public, it is important for parents to know they have a choice. They also need to realize that just because they pay for a private doesn’t mean that it is better. Researching is key to finding the best academic home for every child. Philosophies vary and parents need to know what they want from a school. Academic excellence should not be the only criteria, many more ‘soft skills’ are required in 21st century learning and it is best if these skills begin forming in the elementary years.

Good advice - thanks, Pam. I agree: parents should consider their child’s individual needs and make their decisions accordingly. It should never be a “one-sie-fits-all” decision when it comes to education. Thanks for your comment.
