I went to a public school for 2 years, then a private school for the rest of my education so I've been in both. I've found that in private schools, generally the children are more eager to learn because they know their parents are paying good money for them to be there. Public schools tend to be bigger, thus less student-teacher time for each student. Private schools have more opportunities for the students because they have more money in the school to pay for things. The classes are bigger and have more equipment. I hate to say it but the children are more well-mannered and well-spoken.
It depends on the school, honestly. Some are really nice, and others are pretty bad. Schools vary a lot in how rules are enforced, quality of the teachers, etc. Some schools have teachers and staff who don't care about teaching or stopping bullying. Others have great teachers and a thorough anti-bullying policy. Most are a mixed bag. Just depends on where you go.
It's like a 50-50 thing. It has some drama, it has people who don't treat you right, has people who might influence you and stuff of that kind, But, it also has good things, you get to make friends, meaning you get good social skills, which you do need for the world outhere. So it has good things and bad things, just like everything, it's not all bad really.
i used to go to public school and people allways ganged up on meh and stuff like that. i hated it there. in piblic schools people judge you by just the way you look (sometiems) theres too much drama and to many rumors. if your homeschooled id stay homeschooled. but thts my opinion. and now days public school dont teach you anjything...
'Cause they got judgmental @ssholes... But that's everywhere really. If you're tough you get through it.
