  1. You cannot help but think all the churches in the 21st century are missing a major trick. Instead of protecting those that are protected they truly go out and risk.
    In the UK and Ireland we have very wealthy schools that produce excellent results and we have a vastly greater number in need of vast subventions well above the parsimonious dole they get from the Dept of/for Education. Very easily a tariff could be levied upon the one and transferred to the other. Also, the churches hold vast landholding in poorer areas that could be made into schools.

    Here’s a giggle for you. I hold jt hons from the NUI, and I’ve been offered teaching posts in and around London. Two for the price of one type of thing. But no one could afford to move to London on the salary’s offered. It’s less than I was earning in the early 90s, and even then I could barely afford a place in London.

  2. Happy Easter to you and yours, Ian. Χριστὸς ἀνέστη ἐκ νεκρῶν !.
