My daughter is in 3 rd grade and i want to send her to a private school but she doesnt want to go, she says she likes the public school. Which is better, private or public school?

Private is better sometimes. It depends on why you are looking - is your daughter really sharp? I mean really sharp? If so then private is the only way to go. Kids who are smart can not be the only smart kid in the room, thats not how they learn. With public, the kids all have varying levels of intellect . In select private schools, they are all really smart, all. But if the money is tight at all then stay with public. Give her more at home.

Thank you for your comment, i didnt mention but we live in Mexico, she has never had problems in school until now. I have noticed that the teacher is not doing her job correctly and when my daughter has a hard time understanding something the teacher tells her to go sit back down and read whats in the text book. The kids in her class have been stealing her things,putting tacks on her chair, tape in her hair and im at my limit. I have talked with the parents and teacher but it still goes on. My daughter is happy where she is because she doesnt want to leave her one and only friend.

Depends on the school and the child. I would never switch a child out of their current school unless there were serious issues causing me to make that decision though. If she is happy and she's learning... I'd leave her be. Switching schools CAN be extremely emotionally disruptive for some children.
