There is something in the American School System that is not completely
clear to me: the problem of public and private school.

In Italy the private school is a ridiculous presence: there are "5 years in
1" schools and some private University ("Bocconi" in Milan). For the music
at the moment (there is a reform running) we have the Conservatories of
Music (public@-----. You
can enter at every age (from 8 years to 40 years!!!) and the courses last
from 6 to 13 years.
The reform completely change this status and if you are interested I can
tell you how.
I've just a question:
Suppose you have a private school. To gain more students (and founds) the
school could employ the best teachers in the country. So you will have more
request as regards a school that have medium-quality teachers. More request
means higher frequency bill.
There is a problem. For best education you have to pay more money and it
means that the entry level doesn't depends on the quality of the student:
isn't it? In Italy, for instance, if a Conservatory has a superior teacher,
it will have an enormous request; in a class usually there are 2/3 places in
a year and it means that the place are assigned to the best students.

It is very interesting to me, CIAO.
