I was in private schooling (Christian not catholic if that makes sense) until grade 6 when my mother pulled me out due to bullying. I was then sent to a public school. When I started there approx. half way through grade 6 I was so far behind. After talking to other people from the Christian school and there parents nearly everyone had the same opinion. The school focused so much on religion rather than classes that all of us were so far behind. It took me almost a year to catch up to other public school students because what they were learning was so far advanced to what I was learning.
When I left the private school the class size was about 25. By the start of grade 8 it was 9. Most parents I've since spoken to says they pulled their children ( same age as me) because of the low education level. Will defiantly be going public.
