Offensive education

State education so poor it's offensive, says schools chief - Telegraph

Chris Parry, the new chief executive of the Independent Schools Council (ISC), said standards were "offensive" to parents who pay their taxes and forced hundreds of thousands to go private.

Speaking a week after taking up his post, Mr Parry also criticised the ideological opposition to fee-paying schools that was perpetuated by teachers in the state system.

The system is rotten to the core, it is beyond gentle reform with barrow loads of cash, it needs the pressure of real parental choice, it needs school vouchers.


I don't think independent schools do enough to help children from poorer backgrounds, but I completely agree with his sentiments about parents wanting to do what's best for their children which means getting them out of crap state schools.
