Um...I, along with a whole lot of people who work in the 'caring' industry, still think the health service is (/should be) a public service, not a business. I really don't understand why it has to be a business. Ditto education. Grants not loans!
State schools need more investment. So raise taxes. The rich can afford it, education experts and uni lecturers agree that it would be the best way to improve education.
Stop rich, middle-class, pushy parents having their way all the time. Simply have every child go to their local school. Ok, there would still be parents who move house to get into the catchment area of a particularly 'good' school, but that's a problem even now. I'm not saying this will make a perfect education system, but it'd be a hell of a lot better than the one we have now.
Get rid of these stupid specialist schools, city academies, and whatever else. They **** themselves and each other up. It's just a bad idea.
Good teachers aren't only in private schools, and don't always work as tutors. And if they can be enticed back into state schools (with higher salaries, which the government can now afford due to the tax hike), they won't need/want to tutor privately. You know the main reason parents send their kids to private schools? They want the best education available. If the best education available is at the comp down the road, they'll go there.
