Upon doing this research, I found new information pertaining to different types of school choices. What surprised me the most was the fact that a Charter School can shut its doors almost immediately if funding is not properly established and taken care of or if the school cannot perform and produce the desired academic results by the end of term (Shen, Y. 2011). I also found it fascinating that private schools set their own standards, up to a point, they can hire a teacher who does not meet the same requirements the a state mandates (Kauchak & Eggen, 2014).
Many parents find that public schools simply do not fit their students’ needs. In such cases, parents have to research schools that will fulfill not only their students’ needs, but also their own. Some families find that Charter schools, and Private schools are the two best choices. While some students find that main stream schooling is the right option for themselves, some students find that they are not reaching their full potential at public schools. Depending on the student at hand, and the families financial situation, private or charter schools could be the right choice. After all, each student is different in what they need as a learner.
Since the 1980s, charter schools have allowed families to exercise school choice, a practice that had begun a few decades earlier when parents preferred to control their children’s education because of religious views or racial prejudices. As dissatisfaction with the performance public schools grew during the late 20th century, parents called on government to subsidize an arrangement where children could receive adequate education outside of the traditional public school system. Thus, two major school choice devices emerged: charter schools, privately run schools that receive public funding, and tuition vouchers, which cover some or all of tuition at participating private schools.
Public schools routinely require private money from families for tuition and extracurricular activities, which makes them similar to private schools (Koonce, 2015).
public funds to help families pay for private school education or to allow students to attend
For a long time now our school systems have been pretty straight forward. It was always private schools versus public schools. Usually families with more money are able to send their children to private schools, and if not, children attended public schools.
Another form of advantage for public school students is the sources of funding. Public schools are funded by federal, state, and local funds. In contrast, private schools receive their main funding support from tuition paid by the parents of the child. This is an awkward contrast, however, since tuition only pays for a portion of the total expenditures of a child's education. Again, private schools are forced to limit their student's academic ability due to another limiting cause, monetary constraints. Public students would never have to worry about this problem since they receive government funding. It would relieve the parents from worrying about the burden of funding their child's education.
There are three inevitable things in life if you have kids: taxes, death, and sending your kid to school. When most families move, they look for things like distance from their work, the class and safeness of the neighborhood the house is in, and the quality of the school their kids would be attending. Parents want to see their kids be successful and education plays a key role in their future achievements. The obstacles most people encounter is that they cannot decide which school to send their kids. They do not even know which type of school to send them. Public schools seem to be the route that many families opt to choose. Public schooling consists of two main types: grade schools, such as district controlled school, or charter schools. Most parents often wonder “which school has been proven more” or “which school is right for my
Some people want children and younger people to go to private schools. However, the average cost for tuition for a private school is $10,000 per year, and goes up between elementary, middle, and high school. According to the CIA, the average number of children per household is 1.87 as of 2016. The average income of a family is $51, 939. If a family has two children and makes that income, not including taxes or varying prices of education, that would be over $20,000 per year. Not even including the cost of taxes, bills, and other necessities. Why are we advocating for children to go to luxury schools when the average family can't afford it? Charter schools cost a few thousand less, but on average, cost $7,131 per year. While charter schools are nicer and cost less, they don't accept everyone in. This forces some people to enroll in private schools. Charter schools are catered more to child's specific needs, while public schools are traditional, and haven't changed too much how curriculum is taught for over the past one hundred years. Why do we cut public schools and promote choice and not fix our broken school system? People want choice in school because public schools are defunded and haven't innovated to child's needs. A small amount of teachers keep it old school and don't change up how they teach, but the majority of teachers who work towards teaching in a different manner oftentimes find it hard. Schools are sometimes unable to provide the right materials, and make teachers provide for their
Education is a very important part of a person’s life. Every parent want the best thing for their children. They want their children to be happy and to be able to achieve their dreams and be what they want to be, which is why they want the best education for their children. Because, almost everyone would agree that being well – educated is the closest way to success life and good future. But, their desire to send their kids to the best school have to face many obstacles. One of these obstacles would be choosing school for their kids. In the U.S., there are three types of school: public school, charter school and private school. Private schools are usually very selective, has better performance than government-funded school and has expensive tuition fee. Rich families would send their kids to private schools because they could afford the expense. However, for a normal family, paying the expense for private schools would be overwhelming. So, there options are narrowed between charter schools and public schools. There have been many debates on whether charter schools or public schools provide students with better education. But, there are obvious evidences that charter schools are generally better than public schools:
Why private school? Does this help students or is it just an expensive alternative. The private school has not been around much longer than public school, and over time, the private school system has become much larger and more developed. The public school system is still and option the teachers lack the proper funding to develop the student on a personal level in addition to they lack proper motivation to better your children.
As time has gone by, Americans have increasingly paid more attention to the schooling process, trying harder all the time to get the best education possible for their children. As a result, more parents are turning from the public school systems to the private schools. This happens for several reasons. First, students that graduate from private schools tend to be better prepared for college. Second, private schools open up many opportunities to succeed in the business world. Last, the private schools allow the parents and the student to decide which school they feel will give the student the best education possible. Overall, private schools offer a better education for high school students than do public schools.
A good education is an essential part of a child’s development. Today, parents have a choice in their child’s education and can evaluate both public and private schools. Although both public and private schools provide education and opportunities for students, parents should evaluate the differences and choose the option that best suits their child and families’ needs. In this paper, I will compare and contrast five major areas that relate to public and private schools including class size, cost, curriculum, services, and teachers.
Thesis Statement: Private school students are more likely to have a better viewpoint in learning, a firm stance in education, and will be more successful in colleges than of public school students.
The issue of whether private education is better than public has been debated for many years. Strong advocates of public education feel that children grow and progress better in a mixed environment. Although most private educational institutions do not harbor racial discrimination or discrimination against sexes, they do not have certain classifications that may not suit the masses. For example, a large number of private schools are religious based. Additionally, private school education is not paid for by the state, thus children who attend these facilities generally come from a financially stable background. The danger in this environment is that student
