I have always been a public school teacher. I have worked in four different schools. One was great, two were good, and one was appalling. I have had friends involved with private schools tell me the same thing: some are good, some not so much.
Please allow me an illustrative, though somewhat over-simplified, scenario:
My husband likes Chinese food at restaurant X, I like it at Y. He is all about the egg rolls and beef pepper steak, I am all about the chicken chow mien and sushi. We rarely eat Chinese at the same place. We have a CHOICE. I believe in competition as a motivating force.
Go watch this fantastic video and come back here to tell me what you think. I'd sure like to know your thoughts :-)
