arents may have a number of options when choosing schools for their children. Public schools are responsible for educating millions of youngsters every day, though private schools also may make great options for certain students. Families must weigh the pros and cons of schooling decisions carefully to find the best fit, as school helps set the foundation for life ahead.

Private schools

While most people think of religion when they consider private schools, many such schools in the United States are not affiliated with a religious organization. According to data from Niche, more than 30 percent of the roughly 25,000 private PreK-12 schools in the United States are not based in religious education.

Private schools can benefit kids in various ways. Each private school follows its own direction, which means there can be varied educational goals and approaches. Private schools have more flexibility than public schools in regard to their curriculum, as they are not bound by state or federal mandates. This can be a boon to a student who learns in a specific way. Private schools tend to have small class sizes and student bodies, which can make for individualized attention.

may not include uniforms and supplies. Another potential con is some private schools simply cannot offer the same vast level of options as a public school. Through taxpayer funding, public schools may be able to bring in more resources and offer a greater array of classes. Public schools

Public schools are often a natural choice because they are free to attend.

With a more varied curriculum and greater propensity to offer more after-school activities than smaller schools, public schools can be a great draw. Plus, children who attend local schools may feel more in touch with the community and take pride in partaking in the town or city’s traditions.

Enrollment is often considered a downside to public schools. Many public schools have a higher teacher-to-student ratio than private schools. This may lead to a “lost in the crowd” feeling for students who may otherwise benefit from more individualized attention. What’s more, because public schools are bound by set curriculums, teachers may not have the same flexibility in what or how they can teach as their colleagues who teach at private schools. There are other pros and cons to public and private schools that families can work through together. Ultimately, parents and their children should work to find the best match for their needs.
