I think support outside of school makes a huge difference. My mum was always on me about my school work/home work/assignments/studying for exams ... education was everything in my house.
Public school and now am a business analyst.
Hubby was also public and went to a selective public high school. He is a business development manager. We both have pay scales over $120k.

For me my kids going to the private school they do is not all about the education they'll receive but about a lot of other things. Eg high schools here don't have uniforms and what you see the kids wearing to school is atrocious. Cleavage, butt cheeks. I want them to wear a uniform. My younger brother goes there..he's 14..and the school let my dad and step mum know when he started hanging around a kid who was often in trouble. Just so they where aware. In grade 10 the kids can get flying lessons. My brother is about to go to china to represent the school in a youth conference. Etc etc. I think the these opportunities are important in helping shape the young person. Even if they don't become drs and Lawyers. For the record I went public and, got a very low HSC , applied to uni at 21. Did an entrance test and niw I'm a nurse. If I wanted I could be earning over $100000 a year ( but chose not to as those types ofvjobs are to stressful right now). My sister, public school, has a uni degree in dancing works in fitness. Two other brothers private schools both lawyers BUT did not apply themselves at school and had to re sit entrance exams getting in as mature age. My kids school is a Montessori school though and that is one of the biggest selling points for me. ( I have not read all posts not sure if a debate is happening. ...yet!).
