should school be public or private?

I think it's safe to say that most parents want their children to go to
school. However, something that parents should ask is whether they
want their children to be educated or babysat. Public schools have no
motivation to do a good job of educating because they will get funded
either way. However, if a school is privately owned, they won't make
profits unless parents choose to send their children to those schools.
For an example of how bad government schools can do, I'll give the
reader a personal story about the Florida School for the Blind.
I went to the Florida school for the Blind from 6th grade through the
12th grade. From the 6th through the 8th grade, I had a teacher named
Mrs. Myers. She was supposed to teach Science, Social Studies, History
and reading. Out of those classes, the only thing she taught on a
regular bases was Reading. For the other classes, we mostly watched
movies and played games.
