Private and public schools have operated side-by-side for many years, with 1 in 4 schools being private. It can be difficult to know when or if to switch to private or public schools. Here are some benefits of each that can help make your decision.
Private schools tend to have more resources because they are privately funded. This can mean better computers, instruments, books, and even cafeteria food.
With that, tuition costs can be fairly high. This video talks about whether education outweighs the cost. Some schools offer programs for scholarships that you might want to look into.
Public schools are funded by taxpayers, and often have a larger population. Because of this, the populations are also far more diverse than private schools. This is good for the family that wants to prioritize community engagement and being a global citizen. It can also improve your child’s independence and sense of autonomy, and prepare them for a world outside of academia.
Keep these things in mind when choosing a school for your child’s future, and do more research on your own before coming to a conclusion. Don’t forget to consult with the student about their opinion before making a final decision.
