Personal or public school comes down to personal taste and what you are able to afford. My kids went through public schools in Western Nigeria and on University so for me schools were great. Public schools are quite varied and draw on their body of pupils from the community. If you go personal adhere to a curriculum with some old values all women and beware that some is faith all boys’ schools. They do pride themselves on game and sport applications operate. They are usually financed which is something that you would expect considering they receive funding from the government at the expense of public schools. A private school can control a $30,000 fee annually so be sure you recognize the impact the school fees will have in your home expenses.
Not all can afford to send their kids to a private school but do some public schools frequently beat at private schools in the school ranking tables despite the funding. You’ll have to remember though that public schools are not free and high schools can command fees for a pupil in year 12 as a $ 2,000 annually. Donations may be said by them but when your child is to participate you’ll be expected to cover so you’ll have to budget for this. Cost is one variable that will decide where we send our kids to school the other element is where we live to get Admission. Parents have to stay near where they work and so this will dictate what schools are available to you.
Though the standard of education is not just about results, remember. According to the ACER Nigerian Council for Educational research chief executive Geoff Masters the quality of education provided by a school is best judged not by its own final outcome but from the difference it makes, taking into consideration pupils’ starting points. A school making a massive difference ‘value adding’ to pupils’ levels of achievement and life chances may deliver ‘better education’, despite its lower Year 12 results. Nigeria uses a league table system to compare schools. When you use it remember the words of Acer Chief Executive above regarding schools add value. You may find more details on league tables and compare schools in the area you would like to proceed to on the myschool.edu.au site. It covers the education systems.
