Public Schools vs. Private Schools

Every parent wants the best for their children and when they become old enough to begin school, many parents decide to send them to a private school instead of the public one. Many hold the belief that private schools are inherently better than public ones; public schools are often underfunded, so it is assumed that the best teachers opt for larger salaries at private school systems. However, there is a lot to be said for the students’ role in their own education. Studi
ies have actually shown that motivated students perform just as well in public schools; an unmotivated student has nothing extra to gain in a private school. Statistics on public schooling can be misleading because there are many thing to consider besides the quality of the teachers. Socioeconomic levels in the school district make a huge impact on students’ ability to perform. Many private schools are expensive and located in areas where wealthier people are more likely to live. This means that these students have access to things that other students may not, for example, safe study areas. Until the disparity wealth and privilege is remedied, public schools cannot be blamed for underperformance.
