A question often asked by parents and concerned about the developmental effects of their children’s early education is what was necessary for education to develop as a separate social institution? It has always been a challenge for teachers and educational professionals to explain the difference between education as a public good and what was necessary for education to develop as a separate personal pursuit. The development of individual growth within a community requires that everyone shares in the educational experience. Private schools were created to provide an alternative for those who did not consider the educational opportunities available through public school.

In today’s age of global warming and other environmental issues, it is becoming clear that education alone will not be enough to guarantee a healthy community. There are too many people who feel like education is no longer the way of life but instead a dead end career. The creation of the private school was born out of the belief that everyone deserves an equal education. The belief that education should promote social responsibility and cultural awareness has spurred the idea that private schools are better able to do this than the public system.
Education should be viewed as a process, similar to any other. Parents create a child and through that creation, education is created. Private schools are no exception to this rule. Parents, who are responsible for their children’s education, set the pace for how independent schools will evolve and interact with students. The independence they seek comes from wanting their child to pursue an education that is all their own.
To move from a public to independent school, you have to ask yourself some questions about your beliefs about education and the impact those beliefs have had on your decision to go independent. Do you still believe that education is necessary for survival? And do you believe that you can have both good education and a high-paying job? Are you convinced that social conditioning has doomed your children to a life of poverty?
After answering these questions you can start to look at the different options for education in independent schools. Do you really want to go to a boarding school? If so, what kind of environment and philosophies do you want to find in your future schools? Can you handle the stress and discipline of a boarding school environment?
Independent schools can also provide an atmosphere that will help prepare independent thinkers and allow them to pursue an education that is not limited by the public educational system. These schools often serve children in many different ways. They can offer classes in art, music, physical education, computer skills and foreign language classes.
The most important thing to consider about independent schools is their academic freedom. Many parents have the desire to send their child to a private school in order to get a top education, but they also know that public schools are a better option if their child is going to thrive academically. This means that they shouldn’t necessarily choose the private school option if their child is struggling.
Parents are often torn between the benefits of sending their child to a private or public school versus a private school that allows parents to control the type of learning environment for their child experiences. When you start to research what was necessary for education to develop as a separate social institution, you will see that independent schools have many benefits. You’ll also begin to understand why independent schools often have lower test scores than traditional public schools. If you are looking to give your child a new and exciting learning experience, then this might be the best option for you and your family.
