The cost of ethos — 2 Comments

  1. Much the same here Ian. Little wonder more and more people are sending their children to private or independent schools, they’re better resourced and the state schools suffer at their expense. I attended a State school (governnment) and remember that text books were free …although I had to buy them for my kids and many in year 11 and 12 were online – I didn’t have internet and had to get it so that Clare could access her biology text. Another requirement that could be ill afforded at the time.

  2. I get frustrated at the huge amount of money put into maintaining a sectarian education system. I sit at admissions meetings at our National School dismayed at having to tick people off the list on a denominational basis.
