Also I want to clear something up here.
Why do people keep talking about 'rich people' as if it's no cost to parents of privately schooled children to send them there?
The parents have to spend huge amounts of their hard earned money (in the VAST majority of cases) to send their children to private school - it's not like 'rich' people are allowed to go to private school for no cost and 'poor' people are not allowed. I expect a huge number of parents could afford private schooling for their child but choose to spend their money on other things - that is a choice.
Furthermore, my school (as an example) spends forfeits huge amounts of money to provide bursaries and scholarships to intelligent children who could not otherwise afford to go to the school, as ALL private schools must do by law.
So much jealousy and bitterness in this thread....
Typical ' I can't have it so no one can have it' socialist rubbish.
Life. Isn't. Fair.
