Not that hard of a decision

First of all, do not be so naive to think there is no paperwork. Maybe less paperwork, but not NO paperwork.

Secondly, I would be wary of any school that expects a teacher who is making near minimum wage to also buy materials for students out of that salary. I would like to think that you are valued enough not only to be paid a living wage, which this salary is not, and that you would be provided with resources that enable you to do your job. If the school cannot supply the resources, maybe they do not need to be in the business of educating children.

Sounds like the positives you are looking at for the private school are mostly emotional/sentimental ones. If the public school job is really that bad, AND you can afford to live on $18,000 a year, you can probably afford to hold out for something better and pass on both of them.
