Public School Vs. Private School: An American Debate
Do children really perform better at private schools than they do at public schools? In most of America, there is a lot of apprehension surrounding the “Public School versus Private School” debate. Many Americans feel that private schools far exceed the education that public schools have to offer. However, recent studies show that public school students with socioeconomic backgrounds similar to those of private school students generally outperform private school students on standardized tests. But, while public school students tend to do well in areas such as mathematics that are not socially or economically influenced, private school students still outshine in Language Arts, History, and the Sciences.
