Yeah they'res nothing wrong with them-I know loads (I left St.Marys after Gcses to go to local 6th form-parents said I needed culturing) and I love them alllllllllll! They're doing just as well and better than me at college-see nobody tends to care where you went. I think you get the few jealous ones who get mad because they didn't get the opportunity and it's like chill dude.
Well to be quite honest with you, you don't have to have gone to a public school to be a snob. I know a good few at my school, but chivalry prevents me from naming them (also they are not registered here so they cannot defend themselves!)
'Working class'? I know a lot of people who would call themselves working class, who are actually middle class, but for some reason are attracted to this pride of being working class and wear it like a badge of honour... And somehow - somehow - I know just know that it is linked to nationalism. I suppose it is the romanticising of class in the media, e.g. soaps etc...
Then again, that is not the discussion at hand.
QQ ~ I strongly believe there is no such thing as middle class. If you have to work to provide for yourself/youf family, then you are working class. If you can get by without doing a day's work, then you're "upper class." By definition there is nowehere to fit the 'middle class' in
i think this is a ridiculous question to begin with- i mean, if a working class person gets into a private school s/he obiviously DESERVES to be there... y is this even being questioned??? whoever asked this question, take my advice and put better use to your time than pondering the rights of different classes in your percieved caste then- until then, ur just gonna come off as ignorant...
On one hand this is a silly question. But as someone from a working class family who got a scholarship to a private school, there are social questions to consider. I felt that the largely upper middle-class people who I attended the school with had no idea of what it is to live on a council estate as I did, to live in a family where money is an issue and not something mummy and daddy throw at you - I often felt I lived on a different planet to them.
But then I got a good education there so I guess I can't complain.
I wouldn't want to go to a private school. I don't see anything wrong with my public school. Some poeple here, who go to a private school are snobby(not all people though) and they are actually less intelligent than me. So, if I am more intelligent than them at my public school, why would I want to go to a private school?
Yeah basically, your parents want you to be in a certain environment. It's not like everyone who attends public school shouts about it-I find it to be a conversation stopper, so will only divulge when asked.
I think that working class should be able to go to private schools if they are able to afford it, because everything cost money as i gather state school students dont pay for exams where as private students do etc. As you may have gathered I go to a private school and i love it and i guess we probably have better facilities and smaller classes etc then non private schools but i wouldnt know. But hey does it really matter.. as long as your happy at the school your at and you get the future your looking for and the education you want then does it really matter.. no!
