It depends on lots of factors. In my area the private schools aren't very good. In fact, several teachers who lost their jobs for poor performance at my public school transferred to local private schools because no other public schools would hire them. On the other hand, I went to a great private school in another state.

I was a private school teacher. I decided to pull my kids for a number of reasons... First, private school teachers are often under-funded, under paid (I earned half of ps teachersÂ and all of my paycheck went to tuition and supplies for my classroom), and work until often 7 or 8pm just to keep the quality in the classroom. Yes, smaller schools are great and everyone knows your kid. However, the resources, quality of instructors, parent involvement, and programs offered at our public school prompted me to change. I stopped teaching so I could be involved with the school and my kids. I love the admin. I love my kids teachers. And, I love the opportunities they are given in our public school. Before you decide, visit the public and private school. Observe classes and talk to teachers. See what they are given to work with. Ask the hard questions. Happy teachers make for a great learning environment.
