Not really. That too depends on the school. And being able to be selective, not numbers forced on you, is again something that would vanish the second there is noo public school to take up the slack. Keep in mind, we don't have an over abundance of quality teachers out there waiting for an openning. And it costs to have teachers, even at low wages.In a way they do teach differently. With smaller class sizes and the pressure from the parents the teachers and schools will take greater care in the individual learning of each student. With a mass of students and no obvious incentive for the parent the public schools have little chance of matching the success.
