Advantages Of Public Schools Over Private Schools

Public schools are know to be owned and established by either state or federal government while private schools are established and owned by individuals or private sectors but are basically controlled by a principals, priopetors or vice chancellors but  I want to state that advantages which are:

1) public school provides students the opportunity with people from different backgrounds different class like the high class, middle class and the lower class.

2) The public school however is cheaper in terms or school fees than the private school 

3) The private have more experience and better teachers compared to the private school. In the sense that teachers are more qualified and have more experience. 

4)The public school teaches one about life whereas all categories of individuals are together in one place while the private school are surrounded mostly with rich people who are in the standard level and also the same situation like them. 

There are also other advantages but these are the major one that interest me. Kindly share with us other advantage you know or otherwise share your critic opinion of this topic.

  • In my own honest opinion, although I happen to be a breed of a private institution, I believe public institution allows the students to be pretty much exposed to life experiences since they would have the opportunity to deal with a variety of individuals during their course of study.

  • Public school is just the best, I also attended one though and something that is very bad of private school is that they promote student even when he or she faiks due to the school fees they pay but public school, you fail your exam ,you will be repeated.

  • Right from time, private schools are extremely better than government schools

    At my early age, I attended government school just for one year before going to private school, I witnessed the error in government schools were by the teacher don't care about the welfare of the students, they teach them due to their convenience, unlike the private school were by if you are caught not in class at the appropriate time, you will be penalized

    Private schools remains the best as long as I am concerned

  • In my perspective about public schools though I didn't attend one.... It exposes the student more. Example most topic that I was thought in private school was always summarized but in public school nothing was left out. The teacher touched every part of the topic.  But I still preferred private schools because the teacher shows consern about but in public schools it's not the same

  • am not sure there is any comparisom between a public school and a private school. firstly. the qualifications of teachers in public and private section varies by far. there is less care about the well being of their students in public. only few students from public school make it through their waec succesfully. so i cant see a reason why public is better than private unless for the less priviledge who cant afford hefty school fees

  • To me i attended both and i love public school because we close early, our exam is always favorable compare to when i was in private school. The sweetest part is you learn more the students than the teachers in terms of lastest gjst, songs and slangs in town. Lol

  • The thing is that i think public school is the best because they have trained teachers who undergo training, through the N.C.E program, public school teachers base on a one subject but the private school teachers most of them teach 3 to 5 subject which they are not too perfect to teach so on my own opinion i think public school is the best.

  • In my opinion, I think private schools have more advantages than public schools. Also the disadvantages in public schools are much more greater than the advantages. Most of our youths who are involved in criminal activities today, emanated from public schools as a result of poor management of the school. Many Teachers in public schools are only concern about exploiting students. Public schools have little or no equipments in their lab if at all they have functional labs. I can go on and on but let me stop here.

  • Public school students are usually competitive as there every tendency that a student will repeat a class if he or she fails in an examination but in private schools it is not so as the parents are the ones that dictate to the school authorities what they want for their children, whether they fail or not they are likely to pass to the next class with the help of some manipulations

  • Also, the results obtained in public school is far better and more useful than that of private school cos their result can be used to secure well-paid job in virtually any company provided the candidate met with all the requirements

  • I can't actually differentiate between the two or possibly the one with outstanding advantage. But truth be told that it takes the seriousness of a student to make progress in academics, be it private schools or public schools. The determination to achieve is the key

  • I happe to be a breed of both price and public school, private is good for a better foundation of children, at the preminary stage because teachers at the private primary schools know how to handle the pupils than the teachers in public primary schools, and for a better exposure public secondary and higher institutions are great because you wish be expose how to adapt to every situationa od life and on how to depend on yourself. I think both has thee advantages and disadvantages.

  • the public shool only have advantage over the private school when Nigeria was good having a standard educational system but not with the current educational system which is so weak and more practicals are needed which are not available in the public shool.

  • As for me , private school is more advantageous than that of public school in Nigeria because in public school, teachers hardly control the students on their behavior but in private school there is always respect for the teachers

  • In my own opinion and understanding I can say that private schools has more advantage rhan public schools 

    In private school there are well and equipped learning facilities as well as conducive learning environment unlike public schools in which they wait for the government to buy or provide things needed 

    Moreover private school teachers are dedicated to there work as there is no chance of there salary being owed at the end of the month while public schools teacher do not take there job seriously they engage in other forms of business to meet as they might be owed salary of about 3 montgs

    I rest my case.....

  • Aside the cheap tuition fees and vast socialization, please, public schools are in no way better than private schools.

    From the poor education system to lazy teachers to poor equipments and facilities.. It is even much easier for a child to have bad influence in public than in private because they are not closely monitored. I'm saying all these from experience.

  • Apart from lesser school fees,  I think private school have conducive environment and her able to tutor the student well,  how will a teacher be lecturing 200 students and know who's doing well and who's not,  but private school,  teacher tends to pay attention.

  • Both the public and private schools have their advantages and disadvantages respectively. Both sectors tutors the students in a way that seems best to them, and both sector have succeeded in producing good citizens who can represent them and Nigeria .

  • Well public schools might have more qualified teachers but these days it looks as though private schools seem to have more infrastructure that is an aspect which is highly needed for students to experience all round learning. They might be well qualified teachers in a public school but if the school is all about teaching teaching of theory theory without necessary infrastructure which are usually lacking in our current public school setting then the child will not be able to have total knowledge of a particular field of study. This is an aspect which the private school seems to have more :the infrastructures

  • Private school to me is more condusive for learning with beautiful infrastructure and modern laboratory equipment with trained teachers and we'll behaved students to study with unlike that of public schools

  • Both are good.

    Public school are not discipline in terms of student dressing. The teachers can't take count of the behaviors of all the students in class due to over population. Also disease are easily transmitted amping students. Parents of the students pays little attention to their performance in school.

    They are trained to love each other, stand by each other in trying times, understand the situation of things in the country, allowed to explore the society.

  • The public school if those days is different to the one if this day because now public school are filled with touts and hoodlums that why the private school has more value than the public school of nowadays because even the poor man now doesn't want his child to attend a public school that to show how worst it is now

  • Public school has more advantage, they teach students so they will make good grades, any student that did not read and pass in public school will repeat class, but private school keep promoting  students even if they Dont know anything

    - Aishat Musa - 2019-10-12 10:11:55 Quote

  • Public school are more better than private counterpart, because experienced and well educated teachers are only employed to teach student in public schools while pribatp schools only employ inexperienced and even not too educated teachers....

    Public school are more exposed to activities beyond the classrooms while private schools only limit theirs to the environment...

    That's just my view.

  • I actually went to a private school but had a lot of friends who went to public schools. Public schools prepare you for extreme life challenges and makes you realize how life really is but private school will try to make you think life is comfortable. Private schools also has it's advantages but public is better

  • Both public and private schools has something better than the other. Like in the private schools their rules and regulations are more guided and obeyed by the students than in the public schools and their is more security than in the public schools, whereas in the public schools needs are easily met than in the private schools because things are cheaper in the public schools.

  • Public schools are more populated in terms of student and teachers,majority of the public school teachers are more experienced than the private,the physical activities are lot more than the private bodies,for me public schools are still the best.

  • I prefer private institutions ahead of public institutions because it terms of number of pupils in the classroom private school have low numbers that's way for teachers to teach students with school facilities.

    And also private has qualified teachers  and condulsive environment than public institutions

  • To my own view, public school is better than private school is such a way that it enhance the social and interactive manners of students. 

    Students are also vibed up to face life challenges early, for example public school venture into agricultural activities  mostly and this give the student the basic knowledge of how most agricultural activities is being carried out and also examination malpractice is not as rampant in public schools and it is in private

  • There is no advange of public over private in this present era. Firstly most public are gorvenment funded.and there is always lapses and delay in so many areas.

    Private school has too many advantage over public because they are been properly paid and they will also ensure they give the best to their student. If all schools can be privatized laziness and nonchalant attitude will drastically reduced

  • With my own experience,public school 🏫 is better than private school in some aspects like teacher's.when we are talking about where good and qualified teacher's are,public school is number 1.And a school where there is qualify teachers 💁📖➡️👦👧 everything will be running smoothly not that of private school dat they just employ teacher with secondary school certificate and start teaching.
