Does it really matter?

"Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it." ~~Albert Einstein Public or private, does.it matter? I am a "product" of both. Grade school was spent in the nearest public school. A classroom shared by more than 40 pupils. Books were shared by two or three. Our parents.didn't spent that much aside from contributions. And teachers? One was "terror" but she was great in teaching. High school was spent in a SVD priests and missionaries school in Cagayan Valley. Classroom was ventilated well, around 40 students in one classroom, books were being rented and tuition? Monthly of more than $10. College in the nearest university. Where classrooms are not as ventilated as my high school classrooms and not that strict with what to wear and how skirts should be measured. All.in all, i don't see why some thinks that private schools are better than the public schools. That they are better than those who are in public schools. Maybe in some aspects, yes. But with quality? I think it depends on the student, with how he or she sees him/herself. How discipline or.goal oriented he/she is. And one big difference that iknow is...how much we pay.

I think as long as the children are learning it doesn't matter what kind of school their in. I went to public and private schools-they were both about the same except that the private school was much smaller. Other than that there was no difference. I Home School my children to keep them away from the awful things that happen at schools today.

There is a lot of debate here too about which schools are better. In many instances, it depends on the teachers and their leadership as to whether a school produces good results or not.

Agree! I believed that wisdom is not a product of schooling rather a product of experiencing things in life. Our day to day life experience teach us to become more knowlegeable in handling different situations in our lives.

Many successful people credit their teachers for motivating them. I studied in government schools and the teachers were mostly average - siva

You're right. The quality of learning comes from the student. The teachers are an instrument and the school is just a building.

I went to a public school in my elementary days , since it's near our house . But in HS i went to a private exclusive school for girls in the city . But public or private , they are just the same , as long as the student has the determination to learn and finish his /her studies.

A determined student will learn in spite of anything. Many private schools here are more difficult.

I really don't have an opinion on private schools, but all my kids went to public schools and they learned everything they needed to learn. Guess it does depend on the teachers and students.

I think it doesn't matter where are you going to have schooling. It is how the person will going to learn and how will the person appreciate the learning the process.

The end result of education depends greatly on the aptitude of the pupil irrespective of calibre of schools.

You are right. But, what about the contributio of the teacher for your growth. just recollect how much pain they were taking to teach you and to make you understand the subject. Equally, we were all responsive. That is what actually contributed for the bright future. This is not specia only with some countries. Every country had a good education system. Well disciplined and hard working teachers. But, the situation has totally disappeared. The education system (public sector) spoiled totally. Everything has become money oriented.

Those who seek knowledge will acquire it no matter what their circumstances are. That is my take on this.
