  1. There are a number of reasons why some parents prefer to send their children to private school. The prestige it might confer on them or their children is generally not seen as a major factor (at least outside the über-competitive New York City preschools). Parents will often look to private schools when they believe their local public school can't properly educate their children, if they want to ensure their children get a specific kind of education or if they want a particular talent nurtured or disability addressed.
