There are many reasons why parents send their children to private schools versus public schools. The advantages of private school systems will be outlined below.
Independent schools are subject to state regulation. The regulation of these institutions is usually under loose conditions which frees the institution to promote the beliefs, values, and practices they favor. This reason makes the private school sector appealing to many families and students.
One of the many advantages are that the parents are paying for the children's education directly. When paying for education directly there is more control of what and how things are done in the school. Parents tend to be more active in the education of the children and volunteer at the institution more frequently.
