What is this rot about subsidies. Are you suggesting that we should get down on our knees and thank the upper class for our educational system. They because they have plenty of money can afford to send their children to private schools. My son went to university and my daughter is there just now and goes into her third year at the beginning of September. My children are the first in my family to go to university. I dont feel I owe anyone anthing. They got there through hard work. From what I see you are saying that areas that have a high proportion of immigrants have poor schooling. If this government does not take action in its housing policy to ensure this is not allowed to happen. There should be an equal racial mix with equal opportunities in education. If the current situation continues the same think will happen again. Young people will feel that they are worthless with not future to look forward to. An ever increasing spiral downwards and no pospects of a descent life or good job.
I don't think she said that-I think she said that people who send their kids to private schools still have to pay taxes which are then spent on the state education system.
She didn't say that meant anyone owes anyone anything, she just stated a fact. That people pay taxes supporting and paying for the education system (among other things) and that people that send their kids to private schools aren't exempt from those taxes.
Also she said
The quality of state education seems to be of a reasonable quality in suburban and rural areas. It's big cities where the problems start, strict catchment areas and more immigration results in more racial segregation. I would be the only white person if I went to my local state school where I live in London.
That is not saying it's poorer schooling, just that there's more problems found there, which is true. This isn't a new thing. My cousin was the only white girl in her class when she went to school in London about 25 years ago.
And sorry but it's not just those that haven't had/ taken the chance for further education that feel worthless with no future to look forward too- incase you hadn't noticed there's a fair few graduates struggling for work too.
