No I was joking, I hate some of them like Eton
That Q is like asking should ppl have their homes taken away and be forced to live in worker's barracks
In my Halls of Residence I was the only person to go to a State School; all the others went to Private.
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.
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.
whats wrong with Eton?- brasil85. its got nice people who go there! i dont think private schools should be closed down.
Private school are much better. Working class don't fit in with private schools, the working class should stay at grammer school, where other working boys and girls go too.
