Contrastive Analysis of Public and Private Senior High Schools in the United States: Sources of Funds
Public high schools in the United States are close to school, and because they do not have to pay tuition fees, they belong to the compulsory education stage, and the main source of funding comes from taxpayers. Local residents in the United States have to pay a high property tax, and the main source of funding for public high schools is the property tax; therefore, to attend public high schools in the United States, you can only live near the school. If you are not satisfied with the nearby public high schools, you have to choose to move or attend private high schools.
Private high schools in the United States are mainly financed by alumni donations and student tuition fees or private groups. They recruit students globally without geographical constraints. International students have certain admission requirements.
A Comparative Analysis of American Public and Private High Schools: Educational Resources
Teachers in public high schools belong to the trade union system, that is, unified management of trade unions. Even if they do not perform well in schools, schools have no right to dismiss. They need unified trade unions to dismiss them. Therefore, good teachers in public high schools need to take chances, because trade unions will not easily dismiss teachers. To dismiss is also a relatively shallow seniority, just entered the trade union of new teachers, so senior public high school teachers are worthy of the name of "iron rice bowl".
Moreover, public high schools are not well funded, which is closely related to the geographical location of the school and the income of the residents nearby. Therefore, in terms of teaching equipment, the quality of teachers is uneven, or that is the saying, good teachers, good teaching resources need to take chances.
