Thought this was worthy of a thread. It's been on their cards for a while but I've only just read about it. This is their latest on it, I would have thought this would have pretty significant ramifications to the power structures we have. Fee paying school typify the class based system - privilege earns you power and money etc. Are they able to do this just at the push of a button so to speak, I would have thought it would be a major undertaking with a lot of resistance? Imagine all those toffs having to share airspace with commoners. On the other hand at least these schools breed highly competitive, through their arrogance and sense of superiority, people, which, ultimately if managed well I'm sure is a good thing for the economy and it's not as if the money distribution in this current at present is near as bad as it was 20+ years ago, maybe it is though. More in universities, more minorities and women in higher positions including government. A good part of me is still living in the 90's where all these inequality issues were much more relevant. So is it a big deal to get rid of these schools. Personally I can't ever see it happening.
