Did you go to public school, and if so, did it benefit you or harm you? Or both?
Do you think you would have thrived more in a private school or if you had been homeschooled?
I went to public school and since that is all I know - I can't say if private would have been better for me. Public school didn't harm me, and I have to assume it benefited me. I had some great teachers and some that were not so great.
My kids went to private school for a few years until we moved. They learned great study habits during those first years that served them very well in their later school years. I liked the smaller class size in the private school. They learned some wonderful things that they might have missed if in a larger classroom if the teacher had less time.
Most of my school years were spent in a private school. This was in New Mexico, and if my parents had sent me to the local public school I would have been a minority and it would have been pretty rough - at least in that area. The education, for that part of New Mexico, was better at the private school. But when I moved to Montana and spent my senior year in a public school, I found out how much that NM private school was actually lacking.

Are public schools still important? Are charter schools and privatization the future? Does it even affect the country's role in the world economy?
