Private School vs. Public School :

Private School vs. Public School Niche examines private and public schools to help you figure out which one may be right for students.

OVERVIEW :

OVERVIEW   The private versus public school debate seems like a tale as old as time. Probably because people have argued for years about their benefits and drawbacks. However, while both have their advantages, one isn’t necessarily better than the other. Here’s an examination of  private and public schools  and how to figure out which one may be right for a student.

Public Education:

Public Education Nearly 50 million students enroll in public elementary and secondary schools in the United States, according to the  National Center for Education Statistics . Most people might assume that private schools would be hands-down better than public schools because of their unique offerings and smaller classes, but that’s not necessarily so. In fact, some public schools, like charter schools, offer the perks of private schools (flexible curriculum, regulation exemption) without the cost of tuition. Similarly, magnet schools are public schools that have high academic standards and competitive admission like private schools. But unlike their private counterparts, public schools have larger class sizes and not much flexibility when it comes to curriculum. Plus, they are under more bureaucratic red tape when it comes to regulations and rules.

Private Education:

Private Education Thinking about private school? You’re not alone. According to the  National Center for Education Statistics , 5 million (roughly 10 percent) of students in the U.S. attend private schools. Students and parents may choose to go to private school for a variety of reasons,  including religion , the desire for single-sex education, as well as just experiencing a more flexible curriculum, which is something private schools are known for. Because private schools are independently funded, parents and guardians of private school students pay tuition, which goes toward financing the school in addition to other amenities. But unlike public schools, private schools can design their own curriculum, which can be both an advantage and disadvantage since this independence can foster lower standards. Moreover, private schools don’t have to have certified teachers, which can also be risky, and if a child has special needs, special needs programs aren’t always available via private institutions

When it comes to private versus public schools, there isn’t a right answer to the question, “Which is better?” But given the different qualities of each type of school, there is a right answer to which one is right for a particular student. :
