Terminology mistake

Public education service = government funding/ state school
Private education service = admission fee/ private sector/private funding.


I just wanted to know what percentage of TSR users were/ are privately schooled.

Should put up a poll. I went to a "grammar" school which was fee-paying with enterance exams. There were plenty of spoilt little rich kids there (the tories of tomorrow) but also a few more open-minded people.

Question. If the percentage of TSR users who were/are at private schools was just what you wanted to know then, what's the 'Conservative?' about? :confused:

:rofl: Well, does the words Cameron and Johnson ring a bell? No? Well, they both went to Eton :rolleyes: and then went to Oxford :rolleyes:. Cameron, particulary did PPE - the entry to Conservative politics, with Johnson doing Classics. :rolleyes:

Tbh, what it so bad about the Conservatives? What is it that they do is so bad?

Maybe he meant comprehensive? Also, OP, when talking about schools 'private' and 'public' mean the same thing.

a mixture-ish. i went to a state primary school, then i was home schooled, then the education authorities demanded that i went to school and placed me in state school, and then i was home school with a private tutor on an evening and went to a state school through the day

I should put "private", but technically it was a "public" school.

David Miliband? You can't state the fact that two people went to private school and Oxford who then became heads of the Conservative party and just assume that must mean anything.


Edit: Just read the poll. What about everyone who didn't go to a fee-paying school but wasn't home schooled, there are a few of us you know . Public doesn't mean state :p:

Private all my life, but I'm moderate, bordering on apathetic.
