Most people will defend public schooling with their life because they believe in everyone getting an education, but there is another and better way. I will not go into detail about it here but it is called the Voucher System. Here I will just list some statistics from a survey, which can be found here.
First off though people seem to believe that private school teachers get more but in reality this is not true. Public school teachers get $45,000 a year, and private school teachers get $30,000 a year.
Secondly illegal drug use is much more common in public schools than in private schools. Only 52% of public school teachers said that illegal drug use never happened and 72% of private school teachers said that it never happens. Huh? Which is better?
Third, physical abuse of the teachers. Public 67% never happens, Private 95% never happens. Now I really don’t know which is best.
Fourth, verbal abuse of teachers. Public 18% never happens, Private 54% never happens. I still can’t tell which is better.
Finally, student pregnancy. Public 70% not a problem, Private 95% not a problem. I think I figured it out! Private School is better!
I hope you came to the same conclusion or at least that you have begun to consider different options.
