The majority of teachers teaching at private institutions is because they want funding for their research or they want more money. People teaching at public institutions do so because they want to.
If they're teaching at a private institution, chances are it's only because they know the material. Just because they know it, doesn't mean they know how to teach it.
Edit: How'd this turn into teachers? o_O
But students, even. Just because they're going to a private institution doesn't mean they're smart. I know a girl who cheated her way through high school and got into Berkeley. No thanks.
