I am including the East. Private schools do not have the resources that the public schools do and they still out perform them. There is a reason parents spend thousands of dollars more each year. I tried to find a website that you would not considered bias. I thought this one gave a clear and concise breakdown:
That is a 1998 site, and I question its validity. I know for a FACT you can’t teach at a public school without a college degree…so that website is giving false information from the get go…and totally blows its credability.
Private schools don’t require a degree or certification. ALL private schools in my area have teachers who are not only non-certified, but don’t have degrees.
Here is a more reputable site about public schools: source If you’ll notice under the first heading it states this: Public school teachers must have at least a bachelor’s degree, complete an approved teacher education program, and be licensed.
The stats on your site are false. There is a lot of false information out there about public schools to get people into the private schools. Public schools not only operate on less money, but they don’t have the resources that private schools have, and yet they offer a better, secular, education…free.
The ONLY private schools that may offer a better education would be those ultra elite private schools that are preparatory for Harvard and such.
