A product of the public school system, I am a strong believer that there is much to be learned in the free–for–all study system that we have here in America. Skilled in my ABCs and 123s, I also gained a knowledge of socioeconomic and cultural differences in the classroom. I would not trade my experiences as they prepared me for the world. On the other hand, my husband benefited from a top–notch education and an excellent athletic department at the private school across the street from mine.

Which do you prefer — public or private schooling?
