State funds and fee-paying schools

 

Sir, – Why is the State still funding private fee-paying schools? If parents choose to send their offspring to private institutions, that is perfectly acceptable, but it is completely unacceptable for these same parents to expect the State to pay for this privilege. The salaries of teachers in private schools should not be paid from public coffers. – Yours, etc,
