Youth / OPINION : Public Versus Private Schools: 'Great Things Come Out of Both' : GREG GAUSSA; Senior, 17, Bishop Montgomery

March 29, 1993|Compiled for The Times by Erik Hamilton

The rules that students follow in high school will more than likely be carried over into the careers that the students want to pursue. Overall, a private school will give graduates a long-term pay off in their lives in the sense that they have already been taught to be productive in many areas.

The disadvantages of a restricted school are hard to conjure. The fact that youngsters may be overprotected in a private school is disliked by some parents and students. At a public school, students are allowed to do more liberal things that may not be acceptable in a confined community, such as a Catholic school. Public schools may be more exciting for students to attend, but those same schools may be shaky in setting moral values for vulnerable students trying to learn how to live in years to come.
