Private and public schools generally have the same amount of extracurricular activities offered.
The reason why private schools do "better" at test scores is because they are biased and are greedy. They accept students that are top test takers or are outstanding in academics. Therefore, the statistics are misleading.

I am assuming the the first round is not acceptance based on my opponents immediate points. I will argue in favor of private schools because I attended a private school through highschool.

My opponent states that both schools have the same amount of extracurricular activities. However if public school
My opponent states that better test scores are biased, and states that the only reason they are high is they have the top students. However I don't see how this changes the fact that the education is better. Harvard hand picks the top students out of high school, this does not change the fact that they are the top of all colleges. If anything this is what makes them the top, and thus should be considered a point in the favor of private schools.

Based on the fact that all statistics point in favor of private schools over public schools, and pro cannot prove that the statistics presented are not relevant, I should win the round.

Actually, Private schools are way better because they don't have all the governments crap such as, no saying god in school but yet they say the pledge.
