    Schooling for Children- Private or Government?

    Are private management schools necessarily better than government run schools in countries like India? Why?

    Unless you want your children to learn what 'the people in charge' want them to learn as far as history and social dynamics, I highly recommend private schooling and extra-curricular education. Such as Aristotle or Ayn Rand; anything that teaches them to think for themselves.

    The problem with government run anything is that there will never be a truly objective education. It is a basic free market principle: because private schools have to compete with other private schools for money, the competition will naturally drive the quality of education up. As compared to a state school, which only has to meet minimum standards to receive federal or state funding.
