    Are private schools better than public?

    We are seriously thinking of sending our kids to private school last year the teachers at their school passed our two girls to the first grade and they didn't even know their middle names.I am really concerned that they are just passing kids to make themselves look good.The teachers put on their grade cards that they knew all their shapes and everything but when I asked them they didn't know it,I think for us private would give them a much better education.

    Certainly.In India, especially in Tamil Nadu, private schools always fare better than the public (Government) schools.

    I absolutely recommend private school.  Of course there are some wonderful public schools, but in our area, I don't even see it as a choice.  Our private school offers individualized instruction, smaller classes, more subjects and an emphasis on citizenship.

    My daughter is in the 5th grade and reading at 7th grade level and tested at 6th grade math.  One of her classmates transferred from county school and didn't know things my daughter studied two years earlier.

    Also, there is a safety issue.  I have a co-worker whose child attends our county middle school has been put on the wrong bus twice and left sleeping in the back of the bus once.  And that was all in the same year!!

    I have to pack my lunch every day and haven't had a professional pedicure in years.  But it is worth every penny I shell out . . especially for little girls.  It is a safe, wonderfully progressive learning environment.

    Good luck in your journey!!!

    i completely disagree with private schools. the last thing we need is to separate kids from each other. what we do need to do is make teachers responsible for how they teach.
