It depends. I have mixed feelings. While I was against the culture a lot of times that exists in public schools looking back it gave me a good perspective on all people and how to treat them. I have some friends who went to private school who are now in college but their whole demeanor towards regular or less fortunate people is that they are better people. Their close mindedness appalls me. They are really going to have a hard time appealing to folks in the real world.
"If more people said what they meant and felt, were ‘real’, rather than wore a mask or withheld, plus there was more self-awareness and less judgment in society, the world might be a better place and real discussions, change & progress might happen."
