I went to private school for grade school, middle and junior high and it was the worst. i went to a public high school and adjusted much better.

It depends on which country you are in. Back in the Philippines I spent my whole life studying on private schools since it's of higher standards compared to public school. In Norway however, public schools have the upper hand from elementary til highschool.

With the results of this year's A-levels (in the UK) just released on 16 August, it's sparked another debate about the increasing differences in grades produced between independent (private) schools and public schools.

For the UK, British exam boards have declared that rising A-level results are down to private schools whilst public ones fall even further behind. This means that the gap in performance is now at its widest for more than a decade.
Haven't they always said that? Every year there's an uproar of 'It's easier this year! It was harder ten years ago!' It's practically a British tradition. The public vs comp school debate isn't a new trend, either.


Questions:
Did/Do you go to a private or public school?
Do you think going to either a private or public school would affect and/or improve your education and grades?
Are private schools worth paying the tuition fees?
1. Private and after I was expelled last November, home-schoolled.

2. I never went to a comp/public school, so I can't compare. The fact that I went to certain schools can - and does - gain me "automatic respect" from strangers. After all this is England, the land of snobbery and class division.

I think, education-wise, the difference means sod all because it's down to each pupil to do their best. Hm, maybe it's the environment that can either hinder or aid a pupil to go far? I am wondering cos a mate of mine attended a comp school in Newham (arguably one of the worst in London) and he really wanted to get into Oxford to read English, but his classmates, teachers and his family constantly berated him for getting above his station and for being too ambitious. He quit school at 16 to work at a bakery, then at Riley's (a snooker hall). I felt shit sometimes cos if he was in my place, he'd go far in academics instead of messing about enough to get expelled like I did. >_< Such is life.

3. It depends on what parents expect to gain from paying the tuition fees. I find that most parents pay for one of three major reasons: "better" education for their children, improve their social status via social connections, and a chance to brag. I think it's the social status aspect the biggest reason why parents and guardians pay.

wow.. i go to a public school ... i tink its great.

In the Philippines, parents who can afford it send their children to a private school for quality education (some even try even if they can't afford)

Filipinos might not agree with me, but there are some decent public schools found in here. One of them are Science High Schools...(onward alma matter dear, we're thy grateful sons and daughters~<3). It doesn't mean if you're public the private school people have a big edge on you...XD

It depends on the school and the student. I go to a private school but have quite a lot of friends who go to public schools; In private schools I think the teachers are more dedicated and you can actually go and approach them for lots of extra help and they may be stricter (with uniform and all that shiz, ugh.) but if you're hardworking enough, public school students easily get into the same courses in the same uni that private school kids go to.

big edge in what? money? status? c'mon, they are little factors that will not even affect a person's future. In the end, the school doesn't matter anymore most of the times. The actions on what you do to your life will matter. ^^ (some successful people studied in public schools when they were young)

To the person above: I am not putting the country to shame, why should I? I am stating mere facts O-O...I am actually defending the government's curriculum and the quality education it gives (the teachers try their best... they really do...)I never saw something in my previous posts that would put Phil to shame...Gods, I'm obviously misunderstood. It pisses me off...>_<

Did/Do you go to a private or public school? I'm going to a public school, at the moment.

Do you think going to either a private or public school would affect and/or improve your education and grades? I think that going private could have improved my grades, but then I tried my best with my exams, and I don't know if going to a private school would have made me do any better. So, really... I dunno. :P

Are private schools worth paying the tuition fees? If they do improve grades and such, then maybe they are.
