Both private and public education are good.
Not "educations" because we are thinking of one only one thing, even in Portuguese it would be singular. We are talking about a unified system. It would be different if we were talking about "private and public schools" (there are many private schools + many public schools - but only a system of education - with a private branch and a public branch in it.)
It´s worth noticing that: When the subject of a sentence is composed of two or more nouns or pronouns connected by , use a plural verb.
So, "both private AND public education are good."
