Public School or Government School? Which Is More Accurate?

Ever since the State of the Union Address, there has been a raging debate going on over whether taxpayer-funded schools are public schools or government schools.

I actually was surprised at the reaction of people to President Trump’s reference to them as “government schools.” (Some people are downright offended by it.) I’ve heard of them referred to as government schools for years, and I thought it was simply synonymous with “public schools.”

Aren’t they the same thing? Does it matter what they’re called? After pondering it for awhile, I’ve realized the answer to that is: It’s complicated.

In today’s video, after much thought on the matter, I delve into which term is actually more accurate.
