Teachers in Public Schools are employed on the basis of their academic qualifications rather than their ability to teach, while in Private Schools a non-performing teacher is rapidly replaced.
My kids are no longer at school
Private schools cost more, they carry greater fees hence why are more likely to attract a richer crowd. Unfortunately in today's age this is a grave concern because the rich kid is able to afford the increased evil popularity of illegal substances. I think parents should keep in mind that at a private school your child is certainly more likely to become exposed to drugs and will gain access to dangerous substances earlier in life or at younger age. I went to a public school which was similar in size and i did associate with students from this nearby private school i also quickly discovered that they carry a much larger audience who regularly took drugs and among them was a few student drug dealers. I cant say that this is always the case and certainly wont state public schools are better but i sure would consider home schooling if this didn't negatively impact a child's social development and people skills.
Makes no difference at the end of the day - drugs are sadly in both private and public schools whether we want it or not. It is just how the school handles it, and in my area the state schools are by far the worst, you see them beat up kids for lunch money, it is forced on them and they end up ferral. At the end of the day, we can only educate our children about the pro's and con's of this terrible way of like and hope they make good choices.
Mine go to an independent school, bullying harrassment and drugs are not tolerated, respect is a must from the kids, teachers and parents and the kids actually achieve their milestones well before the end of the year. As far as i am concerned it's worth the price to pay knowing that the kids needs are met and that the teachers pull out all stops to find the currency of each childs learning behaviour.
the state schools around me the kids are rude. I feel for the teachers in the public because they do not have the departmental support needed
Public school is much cheaper...
If I had ever had the privilege of being a parent, I would have homeschooled for as long as I was able. I would have even gone back to university in order to gain teaching qualifications if it had been required. I am a huge advocate of homeschooling for many children, and I believe it should be embraced, not shunned as it still is here.
We are very happily homeschooling our kids and I'm finding more and more acceptance of our choice as the kids get older
