These are few of many questions parents consider when it comes time to decide on schooling for their child(ren).
Although many other factors are contemplated when deciding the right educational path for a child, the three major components of deciding between public and private school can be categorized by expenses and costs, governance and education. Cost has a major influence in deciding between public and private schools. Public schools cannot charge tuition. Funding for public schools come from local, state and federal taxes. The tax payers within each community determined the success of the schools in that area. Generally the more lucrative the community, the more upscale the public schools were in that community.
The majority of public schools provide transportation to and from school and home for its students. Parents cover minor expenses when sending a child to public school. The most important expense is lunch, which is generally offered at a reduce price at most schools, or parents can choose to pack a lunch from home. Public schools don’t typically require students to wear uniform but they do have to adhere to certain dress standards. So even though new school clothes are not required, parents are responsible for their child’s attire. They are also accountable for school supplies. Public schools will provide the textbooks but all other schools supplies should be provided by the parents. After school and sports activities are available to all students
