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? :)

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.

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.

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.

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

<p>Good points chestnut, I do think that preK should become universal and mandatory!  Teachers and schools are also getting grants to help turn schools around, What the government can NOT afford to do IMO is take funding away from poor performing schools and sadly, that's what's being done in a lot of areas. Families need more help which is an issue all it's own too!</p>

I agree, taking away funding based on test scores is not the answer, that is one of the downfalls of the current system.  I think education needs to be looked at more than just test scores, they don't tell the story most of the time and it's a shame to measure based on those test scores.

I think if someone says that the exact same things are taught in a Catholic and public school a clarifying question can be asked and answered without name calling.

My sister is special ed certified but her specialty lies in speech and language. I admire a lot of work special ed teachers do.
