RUNNING HEAD: EDUCATION REFORM: PRIVATE SCHOOL VS. PUBLIC SCHOOL 3 Education Reform: Private School vs. Public School A quality education is necessary for America’s youth to be successful in life. All of America’s youths should be afforded this quality education regardless of which type school they attend. There is a misconception that sending your child to private a school is far better than sending them to a public school. In this paper, we will explore this argument and weigh the pros and cons of both types of education. A further exploration of the level and degree of education that a child receives in both public and private schools will be evaluated. Finally, the graduation rate of young people today is important. This paper will further discuss the trends of this graduation rate in either of the different schools. Public schools receive money from both the state and federal governments. “Statistics show that ninety percent of children in America attend public schools. Private schools can be both religious and none religious schools.” (Chen, 2007). These schools are independently funded and operated. Based upon these statistics, they showed that more kids attend public schools than private. When parents are deciding to send their kids to a private or public institution, there are several areas of focus which are considered. Academic Reputation When it comes to the public school’s academic reputation, there are many perceptions all over the world. This type of reputation is of major significance when selecting the school. Most of the time, academic reputation is related to the sizes class and the whole school. Parents normally give thought to the volume of the school when making a decision. The student to teacher percentage is another key area of focus when deciding which school system the child will attend. Many parents choose a school where the class size is small.
