Yes Eton does so does my school and many more. Clever people are given them. I like the idea of them. It help the working boys to win places at top schools like Eton and Shrewsbury

Yes why not. Many working class people are clever so should be allowed into private school like Eton.
There are many perspectives on the subject ranging from Marxism to Functionalists. I don't see anything wrong with the idea, equality and all, but I think some working class may find it intimidating because of the different norms and values they have been socialised into from a young age.It may mean them having to adopt a completely new outlook on the world which could be more than a lil scary if your not accepted into the middle class culture.

Yes you should be pround of your background. Most working class people want the best like anyone, so let the clever working class take part. Not just the rich

lol im not sure theyde fit in....besides i think ive got enuff intelligence to have gone to Eton... bsides most of them there r pressurised into 10A*s rather than allowed to work at their own pace...which doesnt make a good impact on their personality and childhood....

at my school, the school helped us and pushed us alot to get good grades, extra lessons etc. everything!!!!!!!
But it didnt stop us having fun, we went out every saturday nights! not fridays, as we had saturday school!
About the working class being able to go into Eton i find that is a good idea.
One thing about private schools we have to pay alot more than just our fees.. we pay to take our exams like we pay to take gcses not like government run schools who pay for the pupils to take there exams and the pupils only have to pay if they want there paper remarked or anything....anything we do we pay for it. So when people talk about the working class going to private schools you have to know its not just the fees ur paying for, there is alot alot more.
So i feel if some working class people went to Eton, they might not feel they can fit in aswell.

It like a club at school and you have to fit in with what going on. If don't go to private school then you don't understand

I went to a private school, and decided to leave and attend a state school sixth form! Socially it was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life! Educationally it was also a fantastic decision to make. It enabled me to break away from the taboo of prepatory edcation and experince a genuine outlook on life, from a much more rounded view which had been concealed by outdated tradition within public school.
The ethos in a state school is, I feel, a lot more about community and self-gain as apose to pure self-gain, which as Im sure we all know, cause differentiations of character within sociaty!
