I've been thinking about this thread and topic generally. I think what gets my back up is the notion that private is automatically better than a public education. I loved my public school and what it offered me. I've never assumed though that public is always better than private and it gets my back up when people assume the opposite.

I went to a public primary school then changed to the OC (opportunity class) at a different public school.
Then I went on to a selective high school (completely selective). I haven't looked at BRV's list but I remember it being up the top when I went.
We were under the impression that you had to go to uni to succeed so I did even though I knew it wasn't what I wanted and ended up only doing 1 yr before leaving and now I'm a SAHM.
I would love for my kids to go to the same high school as me because they would have access to great things however I will make sure they know that it doesn't reflect all schools. I was under a lot of stress at school thinking I was failing when in reality I was doing well. If I had been at a public high school I would have been at the top.
Back to topic, I think education is important but I will choose their school based on the school not whether it is public or private. There are a lot of private schools around us that I would never send my kids to!

I finished year 12. I did both primary and high school at a public school. Looking back I was a bad student. I wagged a lot of classes went to a lot parties. I loved my sport classes and always elected to do sport classes throughout high school. I have never been very "academic".
In year 11, I started a school based apprenticeship in hairdressing after working in the salon for 2 years. I was 14 when I started working in the salon a few hours a week. I learnt alot from that job. Dealing with people on a personal level. It was a small salon(not in a shopping center) the clients were regular. I learnt so much about peoples lives. How diverse everyone is. Working there made me a more well rounded person.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is school is not "everything". Also it depends on the child not all children are academic.
(I quit my apprenticeship as the salon changed owners and we had a falling out with new management. I have now worked for the government for nearly 5 years).
