Food for Thought

I'm at a fundraising event with the photobooth right now at a private school. When a priavte school is not a faith-based school, how does the curriculum differ from higher quality public school? I just wondered.

hey coach! i don't know if the question still stands, but as an ed major i think i can answer it. private schools are not subject to as much state regulation - they are not required to take all standardized tests, they can create their own curriculum, teachers are not required to be certified they must only have degrees. this is because they don't receive as much state funding. private schools can take education in directions that public schools can't.
