Effects Of Attending A Private Or Public School by jarmy: 11:37am On Sep 19, 2018
Ok, maybe the title of this post should be "the advantages and disadvantages of public/private schools." I choose "effects" because it is expected that the respondent graduated from a private secondary school to a Private university or from a private secondary to a public university or from a private university to the real world or from a public university to the real world.

What was your experience in your new school/environment? Did you at any time feel disadvantaged?

My Experience

I had no problem graduating from a public primary school to a public junior secondary school. most of us in my peer group where of the same economic class.

My problem started when my parents transfered me from a public secondary school to a private secondary school. I just couldn't fit in because most of my peers were "aje butters." I can remember being rejected and bullied severally.

From a private secondary school I was admitted into a public university. The first thing a liked about this transition was the freedom. There were all kinds of people in the school: the rich, the poor, the average, the good, the bad and the ugly. I had to choose wish class to belong and change my choice as occasion demands. Contrary to popular belief that freedom is dangerous, I was well behaved in school. Within this time, I was able to build a strong personality. the changes in my life at this stage were rapid.

Graduation from a public university to the real world was, hmm..., challenging. I realised that I wasn't as exposed and informed as most of my mates. I had to quickly acquire some soft and hard skills that will help me in the workplace.

What's your experience. Are you in support of private or public schools?
