Ahh, this is why I use Private School.Public School has $11,000 a year per student in a 25 child class;Private School has $6000 a year per student in a 14 child class.I get better student/teacher ratio, closer interaction with the teacher and the teacher gets paid more.
Which should lead you to wonder where the $275,000 a year per class is going. You know the teacher is not getting a quarter million dollars a year, where is it going?
Oh, and my private school student gets things public school does not; like week long field trips; all the sports, all the extra curricluar activities and a closer knit school.
You can have it too if you can break the monoply of government controlled education and move to voucher or student focused funding. Hate to say it but like many European countries have.
