In this video, you will learn the differences between private schools and public schools. While both types of institutions have their pros and cons, one may be a better learning environment for you or your child.
The first difference discussed in this video is how the institutions are funded. Public schools receive state funding while private schools are maintained through donations (often alumni) and student tuition. As a result, attending a public school often means a lower out-of-pocket expense for you.
Fortunately, if you are interested in attending a private school, you can look into financial aid, scholarships, and grants.
When it comes to what and how you’ll be learning, public schools are often beholden to the taxpayers who fund the institution, which means the state can determine the curriculum. On the other hand, the private school curriculum is a bit more flexible and the school is not required to adhere to state mandates.
