There are two major types of education that a child may receive in today's society. The choices are constricting into two groups: public and private school. There is always a debate whether you should let your child go to public or private school. Each of the two has its own advantages and disadvantages that make them look better in certain perspective compared to the other. The main advantage of attending a public school is that you get much less competition and stress than attending a private school. However, the drawbacks are that a public school generally has a lower standard of education than a private school's. While that seems like a vital disadvantage compared to the private school, I think that having a lower standard of education than a private school's might be for the better. With a lower standard of education than a private school's, public school students will have to work harder to succeed, which builds perseverance and determination. These two traits are, in my opinion, essential to a successful and secure future. The advantages of attending a private school are that private schools have a better level of education, and more intelligent, diligent students than a public school. However, that might lead to a disadvantage as students might transform to be lazy and uncooperative. The disadvantages of a private school is that since there is so much competition among students, attending a private school might result in illness, suicide, or other sorts of physical and mental harm.
