Are the private schools a charity in the true sense?
The country gives up £250 millions in tax revenues every year for private schools, so private school parents pay less for their education.
This money could be used to the benefit of state schools. So why subsidise private schools?
If private schools spend £270 million a year on scholarships and bursaries, and relieve the education budget of £2.2 billion per year, and only benefit from £100 million a year from tax concessions due to their charitable status, who exactly is subsidising whom?
