Did you go to a PUBLIC or PRIVATE school/university?

I was educated in a Private school Kindergarden until I graduated in the University. It is unfortunate that in the Philippines the public education system is not at par with the quality and especially facilities of private schools. Although there are public colleges and universities (like UP) that provide quality education.

as long as you have good teachers and you did very well in school, it does not become a disadvantage on your part if you were educated in a public school. it is also a good thing that you've met good friends.

I studied from Elementary to my Master's in a private school. I had few friends graduated from public Universities which were good schools, like you said University of the Philippines and also Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM). They're one of the best schools that only intelligent students can get in. I think that private schools for Elementary and HS are way better than the public. Good quality of education is a must starting from young age.

Hello bubbletush! I would say that I was a product of public school. We are a big family. My father income's enough for our food. I would agree with you. Public school lack of facilities and the quality education. But when it comes to teachers, most of them are good teachers actually. Sad to say there are teachers who are lazy to teach and would just love to receive salary every month doing nothing. But in college, I was given a privilege to study in private school. Thanks for my fathers hardwork and for God's blessings to us.

All through I have studied in a private school, a reputed one in the city and then went to the university which is under the government. Its a very good university of the country. Our school was a great one with amazing facilities and study curriculum. Whatever I have learned I have learned there and university days only validated that.

Interesting! A Hindu educated in a protestant and in a catholic school. I supposed that had made you open minded when it comes to religion.

Private school or university anywhere in the world is meant mostly for making money.However studying in private school/university is more fun than public.The main reason for having fun at private university is the girls.The girls at private university are more cool as compared to public.And talking about me,,even i had gone to private school and going to private university at present

in my country, private colleges are so bad, they just want to make more money, and there are a lot of students that will finish that college, without knowing anything. I`m at public college, and it`s pretty hard. I pay there too, but i know that it will remain something in my head.. And maybe sometime that will be an advantage in competition with others.
