Differences between public and private schools in peru
The conclusions of this report will also be of great help to parents who wish to know, at least approximately, the real quality offered by the center their children attend every day.
The school not only transmits knowledge, but also has the function of forming people by complementing the education they receive from parents and/or mothers. We can already speak of an educational reform in this regard, with the introduction of cross-cutting themes, or social curriculum. It is a question of favoring the integral formation of the person incorporating subjects in moral and civic education such as education for peace, for health, sexual education, environmental education, consumer education, road safety education….
The vast majority of religious schools are subsidized or private. Religious schools are run by a denominational entity and have their own educational project (oriented towards Christian values), always within the spirit and letter of the LOGSE. A part (each time smaller) of the teaching staff belongs to the religious order that directs it. In private secular schools, the rules of behavior, as well as the educational project, depend on the ideology followed by each center. Moral values are not relegated to a second place, but are detached from religious values, so that the student who wishes can be educated in religious values and those who do not wish to can do so in universal values. What is desirable (but not essential) is that there is coherence between the way of thinking and living of the parents and/or mothers and the ideology of the center, since this will avoid creating confusion in the children.
How much does a private school cost in spain
Perhaps the interesting thing is to consider whether the educational model we have is the best possible or we should look at other models such as the school voucher, but I’ll leave that for later, if it comes up…
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is very clear in its article 26.3: “Parents shall have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children”. It is curious that this has been agreed worldwide since 1948. There must be something big behind this that is so protected.
From this article we deduce two things: On the one hand the obligation on the part of the states to allow formal education that is not executed by the Administration and on the other hand we see that when the Universal Declaration speaks of “the type of education they want for their children” it includes religious or moral education as a very important component within the regulated formal education.
This brings us to Concerted Education, which is nothing more than agreements between the state and private initiatives, whereby the private initiative provides education and the state regulates and finances.
What is a private school
Elena Cid, general director of Cicae, explained in the presentation of the report that obscurantism is the tonic in the sector. “There is great opacity in the financing of charter schools, but it is surprising that all charter schools receive the same funding and there is this disparity. What was agreed in the educational agreement is not being complied with” because “there are centers that are profiting with the connivance of the administration,” he says.
“These are clear cases of discrimination,” says the report, which puts figures on this practice. Nationally, 15% of charter schools exclude students from certain activities if they do not pay the fee, but there are communities in which it is more common, such as Madrid (33% of the centers carry out this practice) or Valencia (28%).
How a charter school is financed
The highest percentage of students in charter schools is in kindergarten (27%), primary (26.6%) and secondary (19.3%). The percentage of household spending per pupil on educational services in the subsidized schools was higher than in these areas: 39%, 45.6% and 26.8%, respectively. The difference is notable. With 27% of the student body in Pre-school, the subsidized schools account for 39% of household spending. In primary school, the ratio between percentages is 26.6%-45.6% -close to 20 points- and in secondary school, 19.3%-26.8%.
The majority of households, 22.8%, each spent between 1,000 and 2,000 euros. Each student spent, on average, 1,649 euros. What does this money go on? 1,313 euros on educational services (tuition and classes, canteen, extracurricular activities…) and 335 euros on goods for educational purposes (textbooks, uniforms, stationery…). The average expenditure per household on textbooks was 167 euros. In computer products, 165 euros.
Studying in the student’s municipality of residence reduced spending to 950 euros. Those who had to move to another municipality in the province, disbursed 1,289 euros and those who moved to another autonomous community, 3,243 euros.
