Is private school worth it?

When the price is much lower? Curious to see opinions on it. Specifically a Catholic school.

from a teacher's point of view or a parent's point of view? What exactly are you asking? Your question is a little vague.

From a teacher's perspective.

The only full-time job I could get was halfway across the state (hour and a half) for far less pay. I would have had to relocate to take it, in a far more expensive place to live.

Goes to show my education really is a reason I can't land a full-time job. Not the only one, but certainly a reason.

It might be worth it ONLY if it is actually a good catholic school with a solid curriculum, resources, classes that are not overcrowded, & actually respect their teachers. It was worth it to me in the past when we had a good principal but since she left it has gone down each year. It is not like that at my school and if I could get into the public schools I would leave in a heartbeat.

I didn't take the job. I don't know what it's like, but I weighed the factors and most people told me no.

I would be paid far less. That wasn't a huge issue, if it weren't an hour and a half away in a more expensive county in the state. Taking the job, I would have had to relocate and I'd probably break even. Don't know the area or anyone there.

The employer told me to commit to a year if I took it. Didn't want to do it in desperation. Right now I have a long-term sub job. If that doesn't open up any new avenues, I throw in the towel and find a new career in a struggling state. 17 interviews this summer got me nowhere, and I know I did progressively better on each one.
