Hmm . . . Private or public, which would you choose?

Many debate just public vs. private, but some people prefer home schooling. Who knows? they all could be the same, in my opinion. Public and private schools and home schooling all have different rules and do different things.

For example, in most public schools uniforms are not required, plus public schools are paid for by taxes and more have swimming pools. In a private school, you MUST wear a uniform and you have to enroll, you must pay and swimming is not generally allowed.

But being homed schools means you don’t need a teacher and it only focuses on yourself and not anyone else. You’re freer to do your work and deal with the computer. Classes in public/private are different. Private schools tend to smaller and that could mean fewer opportunities for personal contact.

Student Baqur Goundour had been to both and thinks public schools are better than private schools. He says that because of many reasons.

One reason is that there are more teachers that can teach you about different subjects in larger schools. With more teachers, students would learn more.

Student Timmarah Copland says that being homed schooled is better then going to a regular school. She says that because students can focus on themselves instead of other people, and can get more attention.

Also, if you finish your work earlier, then you are done with school. You don;t have to follow the same schedule every day.

Ali Farhat has been to both public and private schools and says private is better for many reasons. One is that the schools are stricter and give you more work then they would give you in a public school.
