At the moment the Federal Govt gives considerably more money to the private schools than the public schools.

I know how private schools are; I attended one from kingergarten on thru 12th grade, and now attend a public university. Private schools are responsible for much of the disappearing young religious folk in the United States - I count myself among those people.
Private schools are determined to emphasize academics and religion and athletics over individuality and free-thought; these goals are responsible for my inability to have a great deal of social interaction, and the reason that I am no longer religious.
I would never send my own children to a private school; I am grateful for the opportunity to attend one, but 13 years taught me a thing or two - if you speak your mind at a Catholic private school, you will disappear.
I know - I saw it happen to several of my friends and teachers. If you do not conform, you just go away. It's like a bad episode of "The Twilight Zone"
