I`m a public school kid, but the private school kids totally kill it in DECA but they have better training for it, so its not very fair.
Private school kids actually get a lot of advantages that don`t really seem fair. One of my best friends went to a private school and simply because their family has more money they get to go on amazing trips, have more skilled teachers, get personal iPads, etc, while in the public schools we don`t even get textbooks. My school is in a rich area yet the building still has asbestos and half the classes (and all of the grade 12 courses) don`t have enough textbooks for everyone. I think we would be better off if the money spent on private schools just went to funding education for everyone.
I think the system is giving the already priviledged kids another step up and ensuring that the income inequality continues.
