In the UK so not sure how comparable the gap between our public and private schools is to yours. But I went to a public school (if you're English, I mean not a public school) and it was perfectly fine. Got me into Uni so it did it's job.

I think I'd rather send my kids to a public school (read:not an english public school) because everyone I know who's come out of private schools seems very maladjusted to normal social life. But if the closest one is a shit heap then by default they'll be off to a private school.

Grammar education is superior in terms of academic result than private education.

Some private schools are very luxurious, in terms of facilities and services, like nice food, fast computers, etc. However, private schools are simply not worth the investment in terms of educational return.

They're a hell of a lot better measure than other things...

But since you don't find standardized tests to be a good measure of education, then tell me what is, Stewie.

I went to both private and public schools.

Honestly, private schools are like public school with strict rules and better education, in my experience at least.

Oh, and you pay for it.

Public schools around here are rather good. Only private schools I know of here are Saint Mary's, which is obviously a catholic school, and Saint Peter's prep, also Catholic and all boy. Most people that came from prep turne out to be douches.

Didn't go to private.
Wouldn't put my hypothetical kids anywhere near one.

I go to a private school (canada) which ranges from junior kindergarten all the way to grade 12 with a total of about 120 people, 22 people in all of highschool. Since coming to this school my maths grade has gone up significantly along with my science grades. Before I came to this school I went to a public school in England, I obviously prefer the number of people at my old school but the academics at the private school is amazing.

Everybody who has graduated from the private school I go to has gone on to university, except one or two people who chose to stick with their high school education.

Went to a public school, I have no opinion on the matter. I wouldn't be able to afford sending anyone to private school so

I reject the very notion that education can be quantified.

How exactly do you expect me to take your notion seriously?

Unless you present me with a great deal more than that sentence, then I really don't even know why I'd bother to consider your notion.

So, basically...you don't have anything more to explain why you reject the very notion that education should be quantified.

Dude, I hate to say it, but you really dropped the ball on this one, Stewie.

How so? If you're talking about EDUCATION and not intelligence, then it makes sense. You are being taught something, either you learn it or you don't.

You know, Stewie, you usually make quite compelling arguments, and I was quite looking forward to your thoughts on this.

I was always under the impression that 3rd party links were to be used to strengthen one's argument and provide more "mere opinion".

No but I found out that my parents thought about it but didn't bother. I'm glad they didn't as it would have been a waste of money because academic work really doesn't interest me. I 'm not sure if I would sent my kids to a private school. On one hand they perform better but on the other hand I hear there is a lot more pressure put on them (exams, ect.) from an earlier age which in my opinion is unnecessary. Also it's expensive.
