The labour government is so hypocritical if we believe in equality in education surely we should abolish independant schools, does this not make sense?

An infinitely better idea would be to improve the standard of the "bog-standard comprehensives", rather than get rid of schools which are successful.

I think Grammer schools should be included in all councils but I think taking the 11+ should be an option for those who want to go to grammer schools.

Some comprehensive schools cannot be improved to be honest.

Public schools provide extremely important people within the country. If removed this stem would stop. Public schools need lots of funding to upkeep their facilities etc, which would not be provided by the government.

The list is endless. The simple answer is no.

Consider the resources available being shared between the two sectors. People paying for private schools will always be able to outbid the state sector for the best resources. Which rather suggests that the state sector will never be able to match the private sector for quality of education, until the private sector isn't on the scene.

No but they often produce more important people. It might not be fair but thats life.

Although this is sometimes true, it is a gross misrepresentation of the truth.

So you do not agree with me that labours commitment to social justice should extend to the education field

I was replying to Mr John's;

'In which case many of Britans fine buildings will go to ruin as ghetto 'townies' are let into ex public schools. No thankyou'

Is he suggesting that in Britain we have either rich people, or ghetto 'townies'.

Britain's fine buildings?
