Did you go to private school?

I'm just curious in the public vs private school debate: is private school better?

My cousin went to a private Catholic school for elementary while I went to public school. I don't think either of us are smarter than the other over all. He did seem to really hate public middle school though whereas I had no problems at all with it. We went to high school together and I'd say we were both pretty average as far as students went.

Do you think private schools are an advantage over public schools?

    I was going to a kind of private school - it was technical school with alot of mathematic and physics). We were smart pants - all of my classmates, but you know what? Now we are at the same level with my friends who went to public school

      I went to public school. I knew some students who went to private school but I don't think there is any difference between us, other than in their minds - they seemed uppity back then, haven't seen them in over 20 years so not sure how they are now.
