I went to private school for almost 9 years, and then government school. I don't think I have any preconceived ideas about them
If you read my post in another thread, I said I am not totally against religious schools because they are more affordable, but because of this, resources, class sizes, opportunities etc. can suffer in these schools due to limited funds.
I would not send to my child to a religious school, I've been there and do not want that for my children. I won't send them to exclusive private school because I don't believe in it.
