Hey, I was just wondering, there seems to be a stigma in some countries about going to public schools and I never really got that here. I've always gone to public schools and usually the only people who go to private schools are there because they want religion in school.

Confusingly, here in England, "public school" means the same as "private school". "State school" is one funded by the government.
I went to a private high school, for two reasons. One, the state schools in my area are utter crap. I needed to go to a school for the gifted, or I would have just spent my time staring out of the window.
Unless I was getting beaten up, which bring me to the second reason. I had some problems in my junior school - quite frankly, I was psycho. I once threw a chair at a teacher, and I once assaulted a lunch lady. I'm really ashamed of it now, but basically my parents took me to a psychologist (I have the report around here somewhere, it's an interesting read) and it all comes back to my IQ. Basically, in a state school, I would have died. I needed to be around people like me.
At the end of the summer I'm going to college, re-entering the state system. I think I'm prepared for the real world now.

I go to a private boarding school of sorts. I suppose it's kind of an accelerated university program which lets highschool juniors and seniors take college courses and live there on the campus 2 years early...

It's selective by... well... intelligence and performance level... instead of by religious preference.

We have a few schools for the gifted kids in my province and some programs in the regular schools for kids who aren't quite ready for the gifted schools. They are only in the bigger centres and they're all funded by the government (public schools).

I'm on academic scholarship, but people have to pay to attend my school normally... therefore making us privately funded... we were also started by completely private interests, and although we receive some state money, more and more funding is found privately.

I go to a state school and its hell. The school is supposed to be one of the top state schools aroundand still...

1)The fact that everyone is mixed ability makes it really had for the more able students (which apparently includes me) to get along. We dont get as much attention as the less able students, and the teachers aint as good (im comparing my school to a private school several of my friends go to).

2)Without in any way promoting myself here, i have one of the the highest IQs in my year, im in a "special class" for the top 15 pupils. And it still makes no difference.

3)The teachers have no control- which is partly due to the fact that they are underpaid and hate their jobs imho. I have been physically beaten up by a gang of older kids in front of 3 teachers, who did nohing about it.

Excuse the whine, but i really envy those people who have enough money to get to a private school. You're getting a better education, and a better life.

Oh and the university i want to go to wont accept lower than A*s in A level from state schools

i go to public/state school because i fear change ... i was supposed to go to a private school from third year in highschool onwards but i didnt want to. i was then supposed to transfer to a school for "intelligent" writery/arty/drama type people for fifth and sixth year but i was into science too and they had crappy resources ....

i actually prefer state school ... cause no one really gives a crap about anyone else and so i get left alone to succeed or fail as i see fit ... doesnt work out well for most but im doing fine biggrin.gif i think there would have been too much pressure at private school for me to do well and i would have failed miserabely and ended up like my mother ...

ok i will admit that my school has a really crappy system that way too ... all the bad kids get herded off into a specific wing of the school and disposed of as quickly as possible, the rest are luimped together and the more intelligent have to go to these stupid meetings a few times a year that have no purpose but to make us even more of a target for dumbass bullies that havent been turned into stew by the dinnerladies yet ...

as for the teachers we used to have great teachers but theyve all left ... we only have a couple of truely good techers now which is just horrible ... sad.gif ... im still in mourning for my history teacher ...

I've been to all sorts of schools, some much better than others. I went to grade 1 in Seoul, S. Korea, where incredibly enough, the teachers were bribed by the parents to favour their kids. I remember a time I forgot my reading book and getting yelled at by the teacher, while my partner, who also forgot his book but had his parents paying the teacher got off scotch free. Yeah, it was pretty screwed. And I still think the system is operating that way, sadly enough. Anyways, that was the main reason my mom took off with me and my sis to England, so we could get a better education than the one we were getting then. I went to a private girl's school from grade 2-3, and seriously, if I were to say my favourite thing about that school it would have to be the Shepard's Pie. biggrin.gif (mmm...) Not to say that the school's education wasn't top notch. It wasn't bad. wink.gif Then I moved to Canada (sigh) and went to public school, which isn't very bad compared to some of the other "state schools" you people described earlier. Currently I'm attending a public high school, and despite some recent budget cutbacks my school isn't in the extreme regions (as in, extremely bad or extremely good). I guess the whole point is, Shepards Pie is good. tongue.gif Oh, and that private school is definitely better.

Back in 1 to 6 grades in Catholic School, it was vicious, except everyone kept quiet and they waited for you to be alone to attack.

In 7-8 in "funded" schools the humiliation was public, even inside the room with the teacher present...

In college, it's a little of both... hehehe

western oregon, yes. schools over there are total crap...i went to em for 8 years..lol.

but in eastern oregon, the schools are really good. your side of the state tends to forget we even exist though, lol tongue.gif

i learned a great deal at my high school, and it had an excellent gifted program. plus i got to take courses that i really loved (i took a grand total of 15 english classes during the four years i was there happy.gif ). and i have to say that my teachers there really DID prepare me for college, as some of them were even tougher than my professors are! (but they were good....they forced me to do my best.....wow i sound like a made for TV movie, don't i? blink.gif )

but...because it's a public school, recently funding got cut (it did all over the state) and now kids don't have the option of taking the classes they really love anymore. but the teachers are all still there...well except for the best one, she retired early and began teaching one college class a semester. at my college! happy.gif i've already taken 2 classes from her, lol.

my experience with public school was a great one...but they are quickly deteriorating in this area, and it's really sad to see. sad.gif

well i'm originally from molalla, where the schools are total crap.

i was home schooled my first semester of high school because i just didn't wanna go to the high school there.....it was awful. but then we moved here to eastern OR, and i was happy in the schools.

has anyone else ever been homeschooled? i hated it. it was really boring. i finished all of the work in an hour and then sat around waiting for my friends to get out of regular school.
