Which school system is more effective ? Public/ Govt funded schools or private schools ? Private schools charge good amount of fee but they have an argument that they need to arrange their resources. That is true as well. But do they really provide quality education ? What is the difference between both the systems in terms of education quality ?

By funded school payment made by government so salary is secured so teacher and staff may work with more involvement and administration with Government so school will act like Government school
In case of private school all expenses shall be paid by students and owner will be Private individual and group of person where as school course will be as per Government order but monopoly of private body shall prevail. they may not pay satisfactorily to teacher and staff if less students. However in private school where more student are there there is also monopoly and all are facing difficulties.

What's the difference? About £12,000.
The quality of state funded schools is variable. get yourself to Eton and you'll end up being Prime Minister (and who wouldn't want that job!)

In general, private schools offer a higher level of quality. Nevertheless the quality of public and private schools vary, parents have to analyze this before taking a decision.

Responsibility and rating should be prescribed. - Er. Jangyadutta 15 months ago
By whom? - Dr. David E. 15 months ago
Schools get audited. Public schools by government. You can see the ratings online. Private schools get also audited and rated. The best receive the "blue ribbon". - Patrick 15 months ago
OK = but students cant change public schools - Dr. David E. 15 months ago
students can change private schools - money talks - Dr. David E. 15 months ago
Parents can change, if they foster the importance of education, their children can make a change also inside their classes. Important, schools are mainly for gaining knowledge, education is task of parents. - Patrick 15 months ago
Payment allows input, too - Dr. David E. 15 months ago
Of course, the risk is if this input is to foster quality, or prestige. - Patrick 15 months ago

WHAT IS A PRIVATE SCHOOL?

Private schools, also known to many as independent schools, non-governmental, privately funded, or non-state schools, are not administered by local, state or national governments.

Children who attend private schools may be there because they are dissatisfied with public schools in their area. They may be selected for their academic prowess, or prowess in other fields, or sometimes their religious background. Private schools retain the right to select their students and are funded in whole or in part by charging their students for tuition, rather than relying on mandatory taxation through public funding; at some private schools students may be able to get a scholarship, lowering this tuition fee, dependent on a student's talents or abilities, need for financial aid, or tax credit scholarships that might be available.

Some private schools are associated with a particular religion, such as Judaism or Roman Catholicism. For the past century, roughly one in 10 U.S families has chosen to enroll their children in a private school.

Private school guys have a very good business model .Private school is required more investment from parents to prepare their children to be a talented guy. And public schools demand very less investment.
But the guy ,who passed out from private school and the guy,who passed out from public school are doing the same job in same designation in same company .How shocking !!

Private school is only good at curricular activities not in studies.
Now a day's tution is mandatory for every student whether he/she belongs to pubilc or private school.
For parents it is very difficult to manage between their daily expenses and education.For a middle class student it is very difficult to adjust with today's society. A lots of parents are choosing private schools because they want to compete with their neighbors.

Thanks

Due to my experience, private schools offer better preparation for life, as classes are smaller, better equipped and teacher more motivated. This also to foster values and STREAM-education. Of course, this is just general and parents have to analyze the schools in their neighborhood. In the US, prices for houses depend on the quality of schools.. - Patrick 15 months ago
No kidding - you are correct - Dr. David E. 15 months ago
Patrick Henz nice point... - Jagyanseni 15 months ago
Jagyanseni .d Private schools offer in many regions better quality education. This also later for universities. The problem is that especially the access to higher education depends on budget (including costs for not working).

Private schools ask for heavy money and hence it goes to their business plan to deliver the quality or whatever else is expected. It’s business.
State fund schools run on policies and govt. Hence, it’s a bet. Sometimes you may find tremendous govt schools, but I repeat - sometimes.

Private can attend and go ANYWHERE - Money talks - Dr. David E. 15 months ago
That's the idea of capitalism. Important, schools have to deliver quality so that parents send their children there. Of course also important, knowledge must be appreciated in society, so that parents decide on quality and not only prestige. - Patrick 15 months ago
OK - Both are important - Dr. David E. 15 months ago
Quality has more reward - J N Das 15 months ago
Agreed = quality drives prestige - Dr. David E. 15 months ago
For business purposes of them not for others even for teachers, pay less than govt teacher. But teacher work hard. - Er. Jangyadutta 15 months ago
Salary is important, but there also other factors. For example, teachers, especially at public schools, should be hired based on qualification and not of political opinion. - Patrick 15 months ago
NOPE = public teachers mere union folks - Dr. David E. 15 months ago
Often have general education degrees but not real subject matter expertise - Dr. David E. 15 months ago

Whether choose a public school or private school, most critical is finding a school that will provide a child a solid educational foundation for future academic, career and personal success. Ensure that the school emphasizes the well qualified teachers and smaller class sizes that cater best to students' unique academic, personal strengths and weaknesses.

Public schools are the future of any country, and as such the far more important of the two. Private schools are only accessible to some lucky few, who will indeed end up as captains of industry or prime ministers. But the vast majority of people will (have) to go to public schools. And these people will make up the workforce of the future.

So it is your choice: do you want them dumb or bright?

Public schools are primary or secondary schools mandated for or offered to all children without charge. They are funded and controlled by the local, state or national government. Since they are supported by the government, they are wholly or partly funded by taxation.
A private school is neither funded nor administered by the government. It is controlled by a private body and funded partially or wholly by students’ tuition. The fees are usually higher in private schools. At the same time, private schools typically have better facilities and up-to-date technology compared with public schools.
