well, I have tried both as well. I have two older daughters who are college graduates and they attended public school. Public schools are very political. They start threatening to let your child repeat from Kindergarten. If the school does not produce kids who perform well in standardized testing, they will feel the pain financially, so they will put pressure on you and your kid untill you go up the walls. That is how they get rewarded.
In private schools, there's more emphasis on individual development, classroom work and projects etc. You have more of a say in your child's education, and you do get the impression that school is for your child and not the other way around. Down side: Bake sales, fund raisers, candy sales. Did I say fund raisers?
