I agree that not all private school teachers will be great. However, as a general rule, they are better, more well resourced, and less overstretched than teachers at state schools. Whilst there are exceptions to every rule, it is a fact that on the basis of probability a state school educated pupil is worse off than a privately educated pupil.(Original post by Kolasinac138)
From personal experience I can definitely tell you I haven't had fantastic teachers and the majority of my (somewhat) academic success has been due to working in my own time.
For example, my experience of secondary school:
History lesson. 40 mins 'teaching'- read the book and answer the questions, 20 mins of the teacher telling people to shut up.
Science- 30 mins of telling people to shut up, 30 mins of teaching, voice entirely obscured by people chatting.
English- I am the only person in my class who actually likes this subject so during fun 'group discussion' activities nobody cares. We can't take the books home because school collect them in. I can't afford my own copy, but I find one in the local library.
Maths lesson- No individual attention for the entire 5 years of secondary school. Managed to scrape an A by watching youtube videos of people teaching maths.
Go home, do 5 hours of work having wasted a pointless day at school.
7A*s 3As was the end result.
What makes you memorable?
