Hi Brian
I've taught in a public and a private school and they were certainly different. I teach in Australia though which has a wealthy private system and an impoverished public one; from what I understand the American system is more complex.
The major difference I found was that in the public system the difficulty was abusive children and aggressive parents and in the private system it's death-by-meetings and passive-aggressive parents. If your focus is management of students then the public system is best; if (like me) your focus is excellence in curriculum then the private system is best.
I was hesitant about making the change but never looked back once I had. I hope you make the right decision.
In the meantime please come along to and share and steal ideas about how to teach history better. See you there!

Hi Brian!

Hope you're enjoying the winter break. I was wondering if you, your educator contacts or students would be interested in participating in a nationwide Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to get more students involved from SC
