Should it be allowed? I say yes. We live in a Capitalist country where the rich can buy better goods and food, so education is the same.

I see no problem with it. I went to a private school for 9 years. I think I got the better end of the stick when it came to education. You can teach higher level classes earlier since most kids in private schools have a decent head on their shoulders.

I don't aggree with the rule that says people who go to private schools still have to pay school taxes. The most they should pay for is the bus they use. They are not using any services the public school are offering(minus busing). Why should they have to pay for it?

That's why I support vouchers. Its ridiculous for kids to be forced to go to a bad school simply because the government is robbing their parents blind so they can't afford anything else.

I have nothing against private schools as long as they are free. I went to one myself and it was just fine, actually I think having a few private schools is a good solution to keep public ones competitive and have schools that otherwise wouldn't exist (such as schools that teach in some language the municipality doesn't deem necessary to start a public school for), as long as all rules apply to all schools obviously, no school should be able to abuse children or have advertisements.

there's no such thing as a free education

what you want is to force others to pay for it.

The idea of paying for someone else's education is silly. Paying for your own is hard enough.

Edit: Silly me, for some reason I read the title as Public Education not private. And yes, private education is a right. Removing it is tyranny as you are basically telling someone they can't buy something for themselves. Same thing with private health care and social security. If nothing else these things should be allowed, even if public forms of them exist.

I have no big problem with it. The marks aren't really any better for private schools here. Parents end up paying tens of thousands extra for the same quality education.

By marks are you talking about national test scores? Because using the grades during the schooling itself wouldn't work as a measurement.

Yes, NCEA test results come out every year with ranked regional lists. Some private schools do much worse than some public schools, and vice versa, but they are pretty much the same. They teach similar curricula (lums?) anyway. The system is designed so that schools have a limited number of accredited subjects, but they can pick and mix subjects to take (some may teach Latin, others Japanese), but all use the same overall system.
