I am not in the teaching industry, but two of my sister in law's are. One thing to consider economically, when deciding between public and private schools is that public schools will receive more funding from the state and are often more lucrative in terms of salary.


That being said, there are certainly pro's and con's to both. I would recommend shadowing and reaching out to family or friend connections at both public and private schools. The best method for me has always been to get first hand experience with someone in a profession.

I would say Government Oversight and Curriculum is primary factor where people choose private school than public schools. The government has less power over the day-to-day administration of private schools as compared to public schools

I too considered working at a public versus a private school early in my career and learned that a private school offers a smaller student to teacher ratio allowing more focus on their education. Unfortunately employment opportunities in these settings are limited however if your goal is to be in academia both settings have something to offer.
