Comparing Private School vs Public School
The US has more than 33,000 private schools. Most of them, about 79%, are schools with a specific religious affiliation. There is an average of one teacher for every 16 children in public schools, while the average in private schools is one teacher for 12 students. Public schools, however, are much more racially diverse than the 90% white makeup of private schools. One of the biggest differences is that going to a private school costs the student’s family, and it can be quite expensive.
The average tuition for private schools is just shy of $10,000. Public schools get their funding from tax revenue.
