    Just because you are rich does not make you intelligent :rolleyes:

    There is not a magic wand that comes down as soon as you break into 100k/year and makes all your kids intelligent over night! How good would that be!

    You could go to the best public school in the world, pay £50k a term, and yet, still be a dumb ****, can't really help that.

    She is not stupid, she is just ignorant, naive and bigoted. There is a difference.

    Its an unfounded stereotype or the level of education is private schools is better, the home environment in which children who go to private schools is more encouraging of learning, these children have high ambitions and are thus self motivated.

    But then there are still private school kids who are dossers and wasters, they would be chavs normally. In fact, think Tim Westwood, he went to private school and look how much of an idiot he is.

    because being good at exams is totally different to being intelligent. My exam results probably put me amongst the top of the country but i don't have a genius iq. Private schools, went to one myself, just train you to ace exams until your fingers bleed. it has nothing to do with intellect.

    Agreement! I'm no cleverer than anyone who didn't go to a private school, in fact many of them have far more natrual intelligence than me. I've just been taught how the system works.

    Public schools can pay for the best staff, the best equipment, and the best environment for students. Also, successful parents can often have an impact on their childrens' successes.

    Um...don't really know what you guys are talking about... The girl isn't that bad. Her mum is Much worse. Racist pig and all...

    Also, of course there's a correlation between wealth and intelligence. Not a causal factor as such but...Intelligent parents usually get better paying jobs, and therefore pass that intelligence down towards their children...Of course this is not all the time, hardly, but there is a relationship between money and intelligence...

    btw.. Kkol. i love ALL the posts i've seen from you.. Pos rep comin your way (not actually for the above post, but for others!)

    Yeh, and you speak the truth about the exams too. That is what my private school did, but then so did my state school so meh. Just the private school put more emphasis and taught me how to pass the exam better than the state school did!

    I've experienced the opposite: at private school I get taught beyond the exam syllabus.
