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? :)

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.

You've missed earlier remarks about faith based education my parents placed importance in then mops, Dad and mom both went to catholic school themselves. Dad went on to do great things in the public schools which contributes to the respect for all education we were raised with too.

So if your dad taught in a public school, why didn't your parents think it was good enough for you?

You really need to stop taking posts out of context PKA.  You took your kids out of public for the private school b/c kids are more alike there, You've even admitted that.  That's very debatable b/c I wasn't raised that way, My parents were confident in their choice to send us to catholic schools from the get go.  Dad taught at a public school.

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.

Bona fide, as in made in good faith without fraud or deceit?  Those qualites do not impress you, okay then.

As for not being bitter or jealous, that might come across a bit more genuine and believable if you didn't attack private schools at every opportunity, bring them up as diversions and ignore the actual debate time after time.

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.

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

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?

"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.
