Depends on their field. If you're in STEM it's throwing money away. Business fields should get you decent connections, the humanities will get you a teaching spot wherever you want but won't help much outside of academia (which is true for most public schools anyways).
>Forge connections. >10 students to a teacher instead of 30 >Have a better chance for offspring to get into better colleges/universities. >All the kids are smart because entry tests >All the kids are pressured into doing well because parents >Extracurriculars such as shooting, horse-riding and language learning. >Offspring can be sent away to private school so you can enjoy your life for a while. >chance for offspring to marry into old money if mixed school (would recommend, single sex schools practically breed gay).
It's almost like you don't want your kids to become patricians if you don't want them to go to private school.

I agree. I attend a private university in London with approximately 1,500 students and although I'm not extraordinary wealthy like others, I learn and develop myself as a person more here in comparison to if i were attending a public university.
I've been to public school, where people would be consumed about the last episode of whatever, gossip, and jealousy. Now we discuss politics, ideas, etc. Definitely a positive correlation between wealth and intelligence.
Even though I could've attended a 'better' university in academic sense, I learn more here as a person. In today's world, with copious information and intelligence available 24/7; I believe growing as a person is more important than studying books (still highly relevant, particularly STEM).
Also, I obtained numerous connections and if I would require funding at some point, that wouldn't be an issue at all.
>>1089130 I was lucky enough to go to a private school.
It wasn't so much making connections, I had very nice friends that would fit in with anyone, though I did have a friend that later moved to the school Tony Blair went to - i'm sure he'd make 'connections'
What I probably got most out of it was being taught very indirectly what to aim for in life - be it financially or through relationships.
There was a hard working ethos and people realised that doing well in school was a priority.
For the US public schools are only good depending on the income of the district. For instance my district is rather wealthy, so our schools are well equpid, have good teachers, and students ready to learn. Change your environment to an inner city with security issues and suddenly the public system falls apart. So if you're in a poor urban city attend private, if your district is wealthy attend public.
Also keep in mind paying tuition for private school and taxes on top of that is a lot of money to spend. Highschool is highschool, if there's no AP credits in it for you, its not worth 10,000 or more dollars a year.
Wow you people all talking about private schools in London and USA, i feel like shit..i was born in Argentina and attempt a private school in primary (private means a little better not such as the things you are telling) but my family didn't have more money and in high school send me to a public school and fuck,i've just finished it,im 18 now. Sometimes i feel really sad while reading this like that,i wish i would attempt a private school in London or USA so i could have some really good future secure but now im heading towards university,here anyway we have a good one called "UBA" which is international recognized but anyway...i wish i would attempt to some uni in USA
who the fuck is going to chose me for a job in some europe country or USA (i mean a really good job that pays really good,i always dreamed about being in wallstreet or being in a big company) if anyway they have the people of their universitys that are extremely qualified,im study accounting anyway and heard that in USA it's not even a good career (here it is a really good one but i dont want to stay here) and that it takes there like 2 years and here like 6 and half,
Im really really disapointed with my life in general but fuck the future is the future and some others have lucky..some others no.
>>1089999 It may have been easier in a way for people like me but that doesn't matter we don't have to put in the work - anyway, I'd recommend you not to study accounting, particularly since it takes 6 and a half years. By then, accounting will be completely automated leaving you jobless unless you study finance or economics with it. Have fun attending uni for 13 years.
Btw my captcha was selecting all steaks - at least you have some of the best steaks in the world right
my parents were idiots and poor, i don't want to be like them and i don't want to be a fucking CEO of SHELL i mean i want to be a business man in a good country,you don't know how hard it is to live in a country where ever 10 years there is a crisis and everything goes to hell,now inflation is 40% here
>parents aren't wealthy but are both public school teachers so they know how shitty the education system is >attend private school K-12 >become a well-rounded person >played trumpet in the band, varsity for volleyball and football, become president of debate team, and take a bunch of AP classes >go to college and join the real world >realize people specialize >people can't study, play music, play sports, and talked humanities/social science, it's either one or the other >thank parents frequently for the awesome opportunity
It was a positive experience and I plan on sending my kids to at least private high school. With that said, it takes a while to lose your "stuck-up" attitude. I would say 70% of my friends still have it and I didn't realize I had it until I was 21 years old where I promptly humble myself. Alslo, no fights in the school but the passive-aggressiveness made office politics look like child's play.
>grew up being sent to a private school, friends with most people, not very outgoing socially, shy af >grade 9 mum and dad get divorced, get sent to public school over financial reasons >decide new school new start, make the most of it by reinventing my self >new school decide to just make friends with everyone and be outgoing from day one >graduate with pretty good grades and friends with over half the school >still kept connections with old private school mates too >fast forward 5 years, running my own online business, starting my own ventures with friends I met from both schools
If anything going to both opened to my eyes to both sides of the spectrum, I feel you can be sheltered at a private school while although it taught me alot academically, I learnt way more in terms of social development at a public school
