In todays world,if you had a choice would you send your children to private or state school? state schools are getting low results compared to a few years ago these factors seem to have drawn me from beliving state education was just as good as private and given the choice and income would most of us choose private

I should say it depends on the students and the teacher also. When in my elementary education I was in a public school, then private in my secondary and college days. Theres no difference in the way subjects are taught. Its in the pay which differs.

As I was educated from 4 1/2 years old until graduation at 17 years of age in a private all girls school I am rather prejudiced towards private schools. I saw just how bad my daughter's education was by attending a co-ed public school.

I think private schools are alot better than state or public schools. There seems to be alot of corruption in the other schools these days. I always went to a public school. My daughter goes to a public school too but there is always problems going on there.

Yes,chinese parents have the same hard choice too.In state schools, most of the tuition fees can be waived.But they can not make sure to provide the best education to the students so many of parents don't believe state schools.Private schools may have better qualified teachers and teaching facilities,but you have to pay a large fee for them.So most of parents send their children to state schools while rich families' children are mostly sent to private schools.

Here most schools are public schools. The difference is some are famous and some are less famous. There are few private schools. They charge very high. There are two good schools nearby my home. And sometimes I am thinking which one I shall select for my child when he is age the age to school. I love China
