"I can understand why some people would want their children in private school as much as I understand the draw of public school. Not everyone can afford the luxury of private school but I am thankful that our public school system offers a great education with such little cost associated. In my opinion, as long as our kids are receiving a valuable education then who am I to say whether one is better than the other."
"I primarily stand behind public education because it is affordable for everyone, and it provides educational access to anyone regardless of their social standing. Many times, the classrooms will be more manageable in size, and these classrooms are more likely to offer a more diverse range of students. With that said, I do understand why some parents prefer private education for their children. Perhaps its a family tradition or they prefer the coursework and other opportunities that come along with a private facility."
