Public Schools vs. Private Schools

More and more frequently, parents are pulling their children out of public (a.k.a. "government") schools and enrolling them in private schools. The National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers, the largest teachers unions, absolutely hate private education. Funny thing, though, seems more and more public school teachers are choosing to enroll their own kids to private school.

The Washington Times reports that in Washington, D.C., over one-fourth of public school teachers send their children to private schools. In Milwaukee, it increases to almost thirty percent. A profound comment from one of the researchers studying the topic:

"We can assume that no one knows the condition and quality of public schools better than teachers who work in them every day."

Seems as though.
