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? :)

Actually. The way that Jambles is bitter about private schooling, or patents who look for the right fit for their kids does strike me as either resentment or jealousy. She seems more than normally concerned about those who choose private schools for their kids.

I'm not impressed with bonifide "private" schools, No. I am incredibly fond of faith based schools and will always have a place in my heart for them. :) I don't think you can make up your mind about them, back and forth and all. There's not a shred of my being that's bitter or jealous about that.

Tuition. Religious affiliation.

Both--primary was public. College was private.

"Teachers in upper middle class areas have it easy compared to them. Schools in poor communities do more than you think." ------------- You are assuming that sub-standard education is always tied to the SES of the school population. It OFTEN is, and statistically schools in poor areas tend to have worse outcomes, but I have also come across really sub-standard education in supposedly "good" districts with good schools.

"And yes indeed, the Ronan Catholic eucharistic table IS a closed one, however much you would like to pretend otherwise or don't like the term." --------- Yes, seriously, even I knew that, because our Oma was excluded from taking communion.

"Private schools can exclude where ever and however they choose. And as they need give no reason at all for doing so," ------------ There may well have been a change in the last 15 year, but I went through the process of signing dd up for Catholic school in the US, when she was 4. On the application I was asked if the child had any learning disability or difference. It was explained to me that the school did not accept children with known learning differences, and if I signed off on my child having none, if something was later found, the school would be able to throw her out on the basis of my having misstated her situation on the application.

Jams, the page does not address the question of open/closed, but it is clearly addressed to actual Catholics, like here: -------------- "1415 Anyone who desires to receive Christ in Eucharistic communion must be in the state of grace. Anyone aware of having sinned mortally must not receive communion without having received absolution in the sacrament of penance." ------------- Now if you are not a Catholic how would you do the above?

<p>Thank you for your answers thardy.  I was lucky, Mom and dad believed in faith based education but dad was also a public school teacher so we respected a lot of differences there too. </p>

You said earlier that parents used private school because they didn't want differences, why are you not accoutable for your own words?

Based on words and actions, I'm not sure you have a basis for judging credentials or what it looks like on the professional front.
