Public Education is better then private education in an economic viewpoint because it is given to everyone that is physically able to go to school. This means that opportunity is given by the individual state governments to every single U.S resident. People seek to get an education, now a days, any way they possibly ca if financial value is not present to a certain family or individual.

Public education may be more affordable but it certainly does not give you the most opportunity. At a public school you become nothing but a number, you are not given the individual attention needed to strive and get the best education possible. Private schools cost money because its a good education. I truly understand if your financial situation does not allow you to be enrolled in a private school, but if you have the opportunity you need to take it. Coming from a person who has been educated in both systems, a private education gets you ready for whatever life has to throw at you. It is a key to success.

Public education is, overall, not worth it to a wealthier person. To a person who doesn't have the wealth it is much smarter to put his or her child into public education rather than private education because of the main fact that they cant pay for the private education. This means that any education is good enough for his or her child and if this means public is better choice for the family because they cant afford the private education. Even though one must obtain a higher gpa to get into a preferred school under public education just means that you can get a lower gpa in Private education because realistically you are paying in advance for a college degree.

Private education is a better education. It offers the tools to success. People do not just put their kids into this form of education so they can spend more money, it is for the benefits. It gives the students different ways to be educated that public schools cannot offer. Public may be more economically beneficial but it certainly does not offer a better education. Getting into secondary school (college) is hard enough these days and being educated through a private system puts your name at the tope of the list. That is not just because of the name it is widely known that people come out with a better education from these top institutions.

Although private education gives you these "additional benefits" it is mainly because the students parents are paying for it. Bottom line is if you can afford private education you should most definitely take that opportunity because it will be better in the long run. But if a family or set of parents cant afford this "private education" a public education is better because ot s always there and always a opportunity of one self. In conclusion a public education is offered to the public while a private education is offered to the more "privileged".

This is a good point, but you just defended my case and stomped on yours. A private education is more beneficial and most definitely offers additional opportunities. Also private schools offer a lot of packages that help you [ay for students. You do not have to be wealthy to attend a private school. There may be certain GPA requirements and work requirements but that also makes your student work harder and be more appreciative. It is better to attend these schools in many ways, public education just does not offer the education a private one does, that's final. Private education is becoming more and more popular because of these well known reasons.
