At the macro level, private education is not and will not be perfect.

There are and certainly will be negative examples from private schools.

However, unlike public education, in private education the quality of education,


structurally, tends to increase. This is because in private education there is a non-
existent interest in public education - and this interest is profit (economic
performance in general).

If I am not satisfied with the quality of my child's education at a private school,


then I will move my child to another school (private or public): which leads to a
decrease in the economic performance of the school from which the child leaves.

Therefore, private schools are required to constantly improve the quality of


education offered to children, otherwise their economic performance will
decrease (and if they do not adapt - increasing the quality - eventually, due to
competition, they will fail).

Not only the direct beneficiaries of private education - the children - have to win,
but the whole society. Among the externalities of education are: increasing the
participation rate, economic growth, diminishing inequalities, reducing
unemployment, reducing poverty, increasing foreign direct investment, increasing
population incomes. Therefore, private education is a must for the whole society.

Among the advantages offered by private education, we list:

Students can study in a foreign language or in a bilingual system;

Emphasis is placed on transdisciplinarity, interdisciplinarity, personal


development; Student-centered learning is practiced, which is possible due to the
small number of students in a class; Learning through practical and group
activities is encouraged; An extended program is offered, for the accomplishment
of the subjects or for extracurricular activities;Particular importance is given to
non-formal education, by including compulsory or optional extracurricular
activities: arts, creative writing, gardening, science, music, theater, robotics, etc.

Numerous facilities are offered: morning and lunch meals respecting the
nutritional needs of children, transport, medical assistance, modern rooms, video
surveillance systems, computers, internet access and overhead projectors in each
class, media rooms, libraries, halls and sports fields. modern, campuses located in
remote areas of the capital and many more; Children are encouraged to
participate in various projects, camps and international competitions; Special
training is offered to take national or international exams; Teachers are selected
more rigorously and are better motivated than in the public system.

What are the disadvantages? The costs are high. For example, in a school year at
Avenor College, for a student enrolled in the primary or secondary school cycle, a
tuition fee of 7500 Euro / year will be paid, plus the application fee, registration
fee, the cost of meals, the cost of the transport and the annual tax of supplies,
which sum the annual invoice with other approx. 2500 Euro. And the amounts
may be higher or lower, depending on the institution chosen.

Narrow network and more difficult access (few schools, usually located on the
outskirts); Not all institutions are accredited and authorized.

In the last two decades, in our country six alternative teaching methods have
been approved - Waldorf, Montessori, Step by Step, Jena Plan, Freinet and
Curative Pedagogy, the first three being the most popular.

The alternative pedagogies have at their center a specific philosophy, which


involves the education of the child as a complete being (spirit and intellect) and
respect for the child as an individual with equal rights. Working as true
communities, schools with alternative teaching educate children at a different
pace and attach more importance to intangible values and the harmonious and
full development of being.
