I hear all the bleating about Labour’s plan to apply VAT to private schools and take away their charity status!! The wealthy always bleat don’t they? They want all the privilege they can get!! They are happy if we help pay for it!
Schools are not charities!!
Schools are places of education!!
Education is not a charity; it is a right of every child!!
The wealthy like to send their little cossetted children to private school so that they can receive a superior education. They know that the facilities, class sizes, support and equipment is superior. They don’t have ceilings falling in on them, leaky roofs, damp and stinking loos.
Wealthy people want to keep their precious little dumplings away from the hoi-polloi and riff-raff. They want to instil them with a sense of superiority!!
They think they are above the rest of us.
Private education is all about privilege. They want to give their children an unfair start on an unfair playing field.
Not only that, but they want us to pick up the tab!
I am not in favour of giving rich kids a headstart over everyone else!
If I had my way I’d ban all private education and force the wealthy to send their darling luvvies to state schools. By heck we’d see funding go up, buildings repaired, class sizes go down, proper pay for quality staff and magnificent facilities!!
EDUCATION IS NOT A CHARITY!!
The poor paying for the wealthy to gain more advantage is nuts!!
Every child is important; not just the wealthy!
