    the issue shouldn't be what to do with the private or grammar schools, it should be how to get lowest performing stateschools up to scratch. At the moment i'm volunteering in a "failing" school in bristol and was shocked at how little facilities there were. One of the teachers was telling me that in Bristol the comprehsives arn't truely comprehensive because there are huge numbers of private and grammar schools and basically the state schools get whats left. I went to a state school but it was a nice one. I felt so sorry for the kids and teachers that were there

    Closed, probably not. Given the choice of going state or closure, probably.

    Well, you start by establishing an egalitarian system, whereby those schools get as much money as any other.

    Personally, I have no probs with private schools - if people want to spend their money on fees so be it. What I am against is elitism in state schools - I think state grammars should be compelled to take all-ability students or go fee-paying. I know this is going to start a debate on grammar schools by those who are attending them saying they give opportunities to poor bright kids but this is a fallacy and I have facts to prove it, so just you dare!
    Is your question based on the opinion given by an Oxford Don in the on-line Telegraph (education)? A really good read for those interested.

    mmmmmm, yeah i go to a state grammar.

    the thing i like about it isn't that it has better facitilies than other schools, isn't that everyone's clever, it's that to get in everybody had to put effort into doing an exam, so everybody wanted to come here (otherwise they wouldn't have passed the test) and because everyone wanted to come here people have respect for each other...

    I wouldn't want to go to a private school. I saw some people from private pimary schools at our school's induction day dressed in blazers that were totally multicoloured, probably designed to be as eye-catching as possible because private schools want to advertise themselves... i almost felt sorry for them it must be so embarrassing

    my local state comps are hopeless because I live in a bad area for them, it's not the funding and all that it's the catchment areas - is that my fault?

    and what are these facts, mr. yawn1?
