Private Schools? No Thanks!

I see that with half term drawing to a close my children are, according to some retired nautical Colonel Blimp, heading back to the chaos and anarchy of their proper school.

It’s nice to see the mask slip from the smiling “partnership” face of the parasitic private educational sector and see the naked contempt for ordinary people (and our children) which is the raison d’etre of the private sector in education.

If we are heading back to the 1980s and a Tory Government perhaps we on the political left could remind ourselves of what many people were more open about back then - that the only really rational response to the existence of a private sector in education is to support its abolition.

Rather than forming bogus "partnerships" with the private sector (intended to help them continue the tax dodge that is their charitable status) we should be concentrating upon campaigning to improve state education.

Yes, the only option is to abolish the private sector. And the same goes for private healthcare too...
