Advantages of public school

What are some of the advantages of public school over private school? For one, the obvious advantage is that the public school is located in your neighborhood. This means that your children will meet other children in the neighborhood, that's where their friends will com from, that's where your community will come from, and that does lend something to your quality of life.
