    Host: How do I know if a private education is right for my child?

    Andrew Battaile: Both public schools and private schools can be excellent, excellent schools, but you know your child best. So by researching first hand and by having your child do some research him or herself, you can find out if that was the right setting for your child. Again, there are some excellent schools no matter what kind of school it might be. A public school is always near by because it is in your neighborhood, a private school might not necessarily be close by. So you really do have to go out of your way to look at the school first hand and see if it is the right environment for your child.
