For those of you that have had the chance to teach at both, I was wondering what your take is on what you like "better". I currently teach at a Catholic school and love it. There's some "stuff" going on but it's nothing that every job doesn't have. Of course, the biggest factor is salary. We get paid peanuts! I'm becoming very tempted to apply to a public school for that reason alone but have heard some horror stories and am afraid I'll hate it! I just hear there's a lot of politics involved, an enormous amount of paperwork, and a great deal of BS to deal with from the parents and administration. Could it depend that much on the district? Do/did you enjoy teaching in a public school? Thanks!
