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? :)

No one assumed religious ed wasn't taught in the parochial school.  It was stated that there was no curriculum difference between the parochial and the public so that means one of two things 1) the parochial school didn't teach religious ed/chapel or 2) the public school DID teach religious ed/chapel.  Since #2 is pretty much illegal, another poster asked if #1 was the case.

Actually, it's a given a "catholic" school teaches religon. Your quest for clarification about that doesn't surprise me.

No, you don't get it.   We all *know* religous ed is taught in Catholic schools.  But the poster in question stated that there wasn't a difference between public and parochial curricula.  So someone asked her that clarification - basically to call her on her bullcrap.

1.  I am not really familiar with private schools.

2.  I attended public schools in a small, rural community.  I remember that my biggot of a grandfather was not too happy when I became friends with the only *colored* girl in our highschool.

3.  Honestly,I never really gave it much thought.  I simply hoped that I could get through highschool.

4.  Beautifula and sunny.

Another difference between public and private schools are certification levels of teachers. My brother and his wife are teachers. She just graduated from an education program where she had to meet all kinds of criteria to become certified to teach in public schools. My brother doesn't have a single education class under his belt, just a master's degree in theology and no certifications, but he landed a job as a Catholic high school teacher.

"Only a rock would assume you don't teach religous education in catholic schools spring. Lol." Why do you always post such nasty things?

"Catholic education is a topic I don't think you know a whole lot about PKA. For starters, the eucharistic table isn't a closed one." Is this in respnse to anything specific, or is it just a diversion?

I do know a great deal about the Catholic religion in how it pertains to the current debate, its not difficult to understand that a Catholic school would have religion classes while a public school would not.  Now that we have finished discussing me, how about you go back and address the questions that I asked earlier or would you like to continue with the mocking posts directed to/about me?

That's true, as they don't have to follow the rules of the state.  One of my son's religion teachers in middle school didn't have a teaching degree, but he had a master's in theology too, he was hands down one of the best religion teachers my kids have ever had.  The man could reach teach.

We had the opposite as well, but it was in preschool and part of the reason we switched to the school district preschool.  So it can be good and bad.
