Making a blanket statement against public schools is simply ignorant.

If it WERE true then over half the population would be on a gang and into drugs as most of us were in the public schools.

Hmm, what about the kids that get kicked out of public schools but mom/dad have the $$$$ and want them "in" school so they send them to private school. Some private schools are hard up for money and will feel threatened to kick lil johnny or princess out if they are on drugs. The private schools need that money from mommy & daddy. Kids everyday that get kicked out of public schools end up in private schools. Oh, and private school kids end up on drugs and in prison as well. That DOES happen.

Well you know a lot of folks have to put their kids into private schools to try to straighten them out ... so multiply that by more than a few families...

Good points. Private schools are also a status symbol for some.
