Many people think private schools are way better than public schools, but that’s not all true. Private schools tend to have administrators and staff who might not have the proper credentials to be in the position, which leads to serious consequences such as the quality of education (even though people brag about the test scores of private schools), not having the skills to deal with parents and the community and worse, not having the skills to provide intervention when students bully one another. (I was once told I was being disrespectful for reporting a girl who has a history of being loud, obnoxious, and just outright mean to other students. Worse, the staff made excuses rather than solve the problem, showing the lack of skills required on how to deal with troublesome students.)
Another problem with private schools is greed. I can understand these schools need money to keep operating, but for administrators to have big egos and cram many fundraisers down parents’ and students’ backs has gone too far. Parents have to take care of their children and other siblings and students’ have to take care of their duties of being a student. I tend to question where the money goes after it’s donated? Most of it winds up going to the staff rather than for materials and other learning tools which benefits the students.
Sadly, private schools are used for administrators to showcase students academically rather than allow students to explore their potentials throughout different subjects.
Private schools offer an unfair advantage to other students who do not come from a rich family or are unable to afford to go there on their own merits. It gives children the sense of privilege and the right to treat other unfairly because they are in a "supreme" school.
Private schools allow parents to have a choice in where their child goes to school. Currently, your child can have a free education but almost always only at the public school that they are zoned for. If a parent wants their child to be educated in a different environment, they should have the option to choose a different school if they want to. Some choose religious schools, schools with specialized curriculum for arts and sciences, or just a school where their student can feel more comfortable.
