Agree with historynerd that this is not always the case. The private schools I visited (including some of the most expensive in the city) couldn't come close to my public school's robust programs and additional support for kids that need it -- and not only low performing kids, but also those on the HGT end of the spectrum.

Curious which district and if you can elaborate on which programs? Thanks
