Yes why not. Many working class people are clever so should be allowed into private school like Eton.

Private school education is good but, it is obviously the reserve of the rich, which does not make the all the schools stuck up. Nevertheless, I think Grammar schools are the way to go for bright working class ppl

I go to a state sixth form in a school that is in a very posh middle class area. There are 2 main private schools around and in the 'A' level rankings for our area, my school is placed between the two of them - one having better results and one having worse, the private school being an academically selective from age 11!

My point in thats some comprehensives can be really good, even better that some private schools. There are some exceptional students at my school and if I had paid for an aducation at one of the nearby private schools (which are also very good schools) then I could be getting a worse education than im already getting for free - and that is only looking at the academic benefits!

Is this come sort of slur on working class people from the north?
Brasil85, you are an idiot, the fact you don't "know" any working class people and then make a judgement on them (us) is showing prejudice.

I believe that your narrow view of "the father should pay" is completely blind, they are such thing as circumstance in the real world, and not wishful thinking of caviar supper with polo on a sunday.
You are an idiot, what occupation do you think "working class people" have, and what about the range of income?

Your generalisations make me sick, they make me think of stupid people with posh accents, living off "daddy's money", and he was probably living off his dad's money too.

IDIOT!!

From the people I seen from private schools (like brasil85), I actually feel sorry for them...it's a shame that these schools are making people into these kinds of idiots.

I would never want to go to a private school whether someone paid for me or not.

In your previous posts you've said that your best friend is working class - make your mind up. Besides, you're only posting here to wind people up - I can't believe there are actually people out there with the opinions you profess.

Not all of us from private school are snobby losers like this one!

want working class? step out your front door

do you come from one of these aristocratic families or just have lots of money? You live in Norwich - so does "up north" mean these people in Manchester and Newcastle and farmers, who you posh snobs probably look down on?
