Notes

Show
Due to the nature of fees Private Schools are able to recruit teachers of a higher calibre than those of state schools as well as being able to afford higher quality facilities. This therein creates a system whereby those at private school have a higher chance of achieving the best grades and getting the highest paying jobs. Not to mention that private schools where only the richest can attend are an outdated relic of the class system in the UK. This bill will help to ensure equality of opportunity for all children.

I do not support a law that aims to bring people who are receiving a better education than others down; the other should should take the rest up.

I'm sorry but it has to be nay. My little brother goes to a private school not because we are a middle/upper class family but because mainstream schools wouldn't accept him because of his disabilities and special needs. Therefore I cannot support this bill.

If state schools want to reach the same standard as private schools, then they should bloody well get better themselves.


No.

I support this but there should be an express derogation from the A1P1 ECHR right to private property. I also think the drafting could be a bit better, but I don't think that matters considering by the looks of it this will be crushed.

Nay, for reasons mentioned already. We should be looking to improve state schools rather than bringing down private schools

It also has to be a Nay from me, despite how sympathetic I am. Ideologically speaking, I agree with you, I think that they're unfair and those pupils who go to them have an advantage in life that's without merit. However, it is one's liberty to send their children to the school that they think is best for their child, and I don't think it's fair to stop it. We're already seeing state schools doing better, in some cases better than private schools, in many cases as well as private schools. The way that I'd go about it would be to put more investment into our state schools, improve them so that they do better than private schools, work on the unfair advantage that private students get (which we're currently doing in government), and through competition see private schools die out through the market.
