In general, private schools are more focused and dedicated to the education of children. Teachers in private schools often earn more and can be more dedicated when working with parents who are as equally dedicated to their children. Your school is an investment in your child’s future and not a decision to be made lightly. ( http://scsc.essortment.com) In public schools, students are inclined to misbehave because they feel that teachers don’t care about them anyway so they go in thinking that they can do whatever they want and get away with it. Private schools have their own curriculum and if it’s not being followed they don’t have to keep you in their school.
That makes the public teachers sound good, but there is also this little fact that they’re leaving out. Public school teachers aren’t even qualified to be teaching the subjects that they teach a lot of the time (Williams 46). Perhaps this is why the private school students are doing better than the public school students are. Or maybe it is because the average student to teacher ratio is better than public schools. This ratio is 17 students to 1 teacher in public schools where it is 14.9 students to 1 teacher in private schools (Williams 46).
This is in part because public schools bring together different races into one school building. Private schools are intended for the wealthy, according to this position. The isolation created by a wealthy-only atmosphere prevents students from being exposed to reality. A controversial topic regarding private schools is that parents can obtain vouchers to send their children there. This is another free ride for the wealthy, the very people who do not need governmental assistance.

In fact, on average, private schools aren't any better than public schools, or so says a new book on the subject, All Else Equal: Are Public And Private Schools Different. In conclusion, several points could be drawn on the issue of public schools versus private schools.
The environment which surrounds you at a school affects the outcome of someone’s learning ability. Although private schools may not be state funded, they still have the means to supply a nice facility for their students. Public schools are kept up to a certain extent but not the way a private school is. Unlike a private school, a public school is assigned to you based off of where you live. So even if the school was dirty and run down, you would have to attend there unless you moved to another school district.
At public school the student/teacher Allen2 ratio average is 22:1. This shows that private schools have more time for the teacher to tutor each student for a longer amount of time. There is no debate which system out performs the other. Private school has stricter curriculum, stricter graduation requirements, and far better student/teachers ratios.

I realize now that, behind the high tuition costs, private schools provide caring, challenges, and nurturing in an environment that is lacking in public schools. Families with resources inevitably send their children to private school. It’s what people in that social world do. Nevertheless, their reasons are not only because they can afford it, but also because the real worth of private education can be found in how those students more readily develop an awareness of academic excellence and high achievement. I have experienced all of the factors that constitute a free education.
When talking about the advantages of private schools, it is important to know what the public schools are being compared to. Some cities may have a better public school district, but other may not, so many parents may not have a chose than to send their child to be private
Violence is the number one issue world wide in public High schools. An estimated 30-35% of students in the world attend private schools. It has been a proven fact that kids that attended private high schools are better prepared for college. This is possible because there are fewer disturbances, and a less populated building. Students are tested before being accepted into private schools so therefore, most kids who are not college prep.
