    what can the public schools do to emulate the same success?

    • watching says:

      Pick their students and weed out the non-performers…
      that is the distinct advantage that private schools have over public schools.

      Have a high percentage of students under the care & encouragement of 2 parents. Also have motivated teachers who are appreciated by those parents.
