In today’s world, some of us face the decision on whether to send our children to private schools, public schools, or just to educate them at home ourselves. This may be a controversial topic in that it brings many oppositions but yet create agreements in some areas.
Let’s take a look at some of the subtopics for discussion.
First, are public schools beneficial for all children? The majority may agree with this statement. Just imagine if there were no public schools or we had no other choice but to send children to private schools or educate them at home. There would be an enormous amount of educators who would find themselves without careers. Then who would educate our children? It would be a possibility that a lot of parents would have to consider educating themselves in order for their children to be scholastically successful. Various avenues come to mind when it is so important to educate our children; especially in times like these where there are several issues that may affect any one of us; such as unemployment, lack of jobs (in certain fields), homelessness, poverty, lack of adequate housing and etc………Then just to say the words “private schools”, is debatable and can carry on for days without any solid resolutions. Why? Private schools seem to have been created or established for specific socioeconomic classes. Opinionated? Let’s see. Remember most public schools are what; free. We all are pretty much aware that our children are not going to private schools for free. Private schools are “set in stone” for the middle to upper class societies. Is this a fair development for all of our children? My personal experience with private schools, I have found that private schools are more advanced then our public schools. My attendance at one private school showed that, at the time, I started in fourth grade and graduated from the eight grade. I then transferred to a public school to begin my junior to senior years. Once in public school I noticed that my scholastic achievements in private school seem to have accelerated my educational level to the point where I was approximately one and half to two levels ahead or more advance than my eight grade peers.
I would like to hear other thoughts on these topics including I will continue to post valuable information, my experiences, articles, and other information related to this.
