Is it better to teach at a public school or a private school?
I've taught at two private schools and three public schools and interviewed at and checked out many more. Here's what I found.
- Advantages: Easier parents, monetary and job security
- Disadvantages: Unnaturally high initial standards, difficult initial situations, challenging students
- Advantages: Easier students, smaller classes, less bureaucracy, keep more pay, more holidays
- Disadvantages: Difficult parents, less job security
