    Default Private schools should pay their own way

    At a time of economic meltdown, is it time the government stopped bankrolling these elitist institutions????

    Where would they send their kids?

    You hardly expect the Clongowes and Blackrock boys to mix with the serfs.

    ...I agree. They should be allowed a tax-free status also.

    Then all we need to do is privatise the public schools.

    Eh...Very few true private schools are actually in existence...most are simply fee paying i.e fees are paid but most teachers remain public servants.

    The government is only paying the teachers wages which are the same for every school, and is a right for every child in the country.

    The parents are paying for the facilities.

    Apparently most private schools have teachers who are paid by the government, but do not receive a capitation grant.

    Eh... you do realise that this system saves the state huge amounts of money?

    The vast majority of parents who send children could not afford to do so if their schools became truly "private" which would mean that these children would have to be accomadated by the state run schools at massive cost to the state.
