Private school

Private schools, also known to many as independent schools, non-governmental, privately funded, or nonstate schools, are not administered by local, state or national governments; parents of kids who attend private schools choose to have their child be in a school where kids are accordingly selected based on either their family income, religious background, or simply based on their academics. Private schools retain the right to select their students and are funded in whole or in part by charging their students tuition, rather than relying on mandatory taxation through public (government) funding; at some private schools students may be able to get a scholarship, lowering this tuition fee, dependent on a student's talents or abilities (e.g. sport scholarship, art scholarship, academic scholarship), need for financial aid, or tax credit scholarships that might be available. There are many types of private schools out there such as, Jewish schools, and Catholic schools, etc.

I see no difference in private or public schooling. With both of them, you get an education.The student is the person who takes advantage of the education or not.
