What separates private school from public school IYO?

What school memories stand out about your own schooling?  Did you attend public schools or "private"?

What did you want to be when you grew up?

As a side, What's your weather like today? :)

"You were raised in private school, you wished that for at least one of your children at one point and if private schools means to you that all people are alike, then yes, you were raised that way." -------- This bears repeating, and I do wish Jams would address it.

Jams, no, I did not miss it at all. Clearly they must have thought that a religious education was superior, if they paid for 6 kids to go to Catholic school.

According to the comments, it wasn't even considered.

No, Not fiction PKA. But if you don't want to stand behind the posts and support of posts that mock and put down public schools so be it. I am amused you even go as far as to compare the dollars and cents private schools take from you to the public dollars that fund public school. Nice competition tactic there but it doesn't work. I was raised to respect differences not challenge them.

Jams, are you trying to say that your parents did NOT think Catholic school was superior to public? Then why did they put 6 kids through Catholic school?

Who here has EVER put down public schools?  If you are, as you said a few days ago, one that stand behinds your words, then please provide some support for your claim that any posts mocked and put down public schools. 

And your last sentence? One of the most hilarious and insincere things I've ever read.

"They saw value in it." ----------- Sure, and obviously a "value" they could not get at the public school.

Maybe for the same reason dad and mom started savings accounts for us all so young too....  They saw value in it.  

ETA and based on your logic, If one sends their children to a catholic school b/c they believe it's superior to public does that also mean that what else they do for their children mean their choices are superior to those who aren't doing what they're doing?  TIA.
