I could have sent my kids to Private Schools. I chose not to. They have turned out well-educated and well-balanced and I was there to help them develop as people and in their education.saintstone said:Why, if it works?? Having money is all about using it, if you were loaded, would you drive about in a shed or a decent motor?? I think I know the answer and the same applies to education, if you can afford to pay to get that bit extra, why not??ashie said:It's not about money? Pull the other one.whitecity said:See?ashie said:Another straw-man argument eh! Did I mention "higher" educated children. I am talking about children educated at elite private schools. It distorts society. It limits social mobility. It perpetuates elitism. Does the phrase "self-perpetuating oligarchy" ring a bell?
ashie's argument has NOTHING to do with standards of education, parents' desire to see the child recieves the best opportunity, nor even money. It's all about getting rid of "elite" private education.
And yes, I would get rid of elite private education.
I like the idea that parents should assist in their children's' education unless they're rich enough to pack them off to school.
