for those not homeschooling, are you gonna send your preschooler to a state (goverment) school or a private school for 'big school'?
and why?

Public school..... as a public school educator I want him in the public school system that being said the public school system seems be getting worse and worse lately. So, hopefully things will improve before we have to make a choice.

thats the word i was looking for...public. sorry our terminology here is so different.

Kristy, our public schools here are not good. there are a few that still are ok, but you have to live in the ara around the school and the only ones around us are bad!!!
the classes are so full, and the facitilies not great

so for us its private.

Carrie will join us for homeschooling next year. We tried the public school last year and it was terrible. There are a few decent private schools in the area, but at $800 a kid per month we just can't swing it. I have the older two homeschooling with me this year (Carrie is in her private preschool again) and so far it is going well.

I agree with Janice that private schools aren't better in every case. Especially if you have a kid who has a learning disability or is gifted you might find that that public school has more resources to offer them.

well after much deliberation we have decided to go public school for her primary school ( Gr 1 to 7) and then decide for high school.
the biggest problem here is we dont have many decent public schools. and neither is free over here, but the price difference is huge!

My son goes to private preschool. It's at a private catholic elementary school. It will be private all the way for him. The school bus system/clusters here is awful.

I'm just not sure if he'll stay at his current private school next year or if i'll move him closer to where we live.

He goes here: St. James School

But thinking about this school for next year: School | St. Margaret Mary

I can't afford private school, so it will be public school.

I went to public and private schools and I personally, had a much better experience at the private school. But it just depends on the public school, the area we live in and if we could afford a private school.
