It depends on where you live. Some public districts are awful, some are excellent.
- Is your kid smart enough to get into a Charter?
- Would you get financial aid for said private school?
- What do you want your kid learning? Strictly things found in textbooks? Or do you want them taught a certain mindset or mentality? That's what private schools offer.
