Today, I learnt that my 2-year-old half brother is going to a private school while my brother and I go to a public school. My stepmom said it's for the best because "he's way smarter than you two are". FML

While this does suck, a lot of it could have to do with her financial situation. If you're father didn't have the money to send you to a private school, but she has the money to send her kid, then it makes sense.

Private schools are overrated. I know people whose kids attend public school and others who attend private school, and at the end of the day, it does not mean much once you are in university. Yes, you learn more material and whatnot in private school, but once university hits, everyone will be at the same level, and if in the first year, it will be no difference starting in second year. I have a family friend who took their son out of private so that his younger sister can go instead. She was quiet and strange back then, but then came high school and she went to a public one. She is so much happier and sociable now. At the end of the day, it depends on the student. Some excel better in private while others excel better in public.
