Many schools in other countries spend less time in school and do not receive homework. Those schools are the ones with the highest test scores. The US is not even in the top twelve for best scores. With all the extra time students spend on school related items, such as homework, it is not helping. An article written by Sean Coughlan states that, “Pupils in England already get an average of 150 hours extra teaching per year than their Finnish counterparts.” Students in Finland do not receive homework, but their test scores are ranked sixth in the world.
First thing to consider is the facilities. Private schools don't get funds from the government. Rather, they secure funds through tuition fees and sponsors. The sectarian catholic schools can get financial backing from their comparing congregations. Hence, private schools have higher budget than public schools, empowering them to enhance their facilities.
There are a lot of people who want to study but can’t because of the costs. Higher education only gets more expensive. Education is not only beneficial for the people who have education but also to others. Therefore, it is a positive externality. Varian (2014) reached to the conclusion that positive externalities are most of the time under produced.
On the other hand, if a class is composed of fewer students it is very easy for a teacher to control that class and none of the students will be able to do disruptive work and go unnoticed till the end of the class. Fewer students means that each one gets attention from the teacher, and they are encouraged and pushed to take part and express their opinions. Furthermore, the results show that the benefits of smaller classes for the students who were in these classes till grade three, lasted through their high schools. These students were less likely to drop out and to graduate on time, more likely to understand hard subjects in high school easily and have higher acceptance of college than their peers do in normal classes.

Most of the institutions are currently taking admission based on the academic standard of the students. This implies that academic results are becoming the main measurement of the quality of a student, in order to secure a position in higher institutions, students have to ensure an outstanding performance in their academic report. In this case, receiving after-school private tuition has become common among students. According to Tse (2014), it is not unfamiliar that teenagers in most of the Asian nations including Japan, Singapore, Korea, Macau as well as Hong Kong are taking private tutoring after school (p. 283). The after-class learning activities may be helpful for the slow-leaners in assisting them to improve the study progress to catch up with the others and supporting them to finish their homework more effectively with the extra help from the private tutor.
Unlike those who study at traditional school, homeschooled students do not have to attend classes a certain number of times every week, at specific times. In fact, they can plan or change their studying schedule effortlessly without school’s permission (Bass, 2011). Moreover, by studying at home, students can avoid being assembled into a class at a particular location where learning resources are located. This can save them from the transportation issues as well as wasting their time. Those who endorse public schools argue that this convenience may lead to students’ neglect of their studying.
The post-test scores proved that the journal writing students scored higher than those that did not use journals. The strength of the article was to bring to light the advantages of journal writing in math classes. The weakness is the limited number of students (54) used in the study. They also only studied boys. I would like to read on results from both
Because their curriculum implemented at public schools provide students enough amount and quality of works (Kim). Even students in US think that they don’t have enough time for performing homework their school give (Kang). Some high rank students receive private education to learn in-depth contents, but charge of private education is lesser as compared with Korea (Kang). In Canada, there are many private education density area like Gangnam of Korea at big sity as Vancouver (Park). Also, in several countries of Europe, these days, the number of students received private education is increasingly rising.
Literature Review: I will begin my literature review by sharing the importance of not only Professional development but continuing professional development in schools. My review would convince you of the fact the in 21st century learning is all about collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and cooperative learning. Learning cannot take place in isolation. In this era of testing and school reform, many schools are looking for ways to make their teaching practices more effective and collaborative. One way this can happen is through the use of Professional Learning Communities (PLCs).
