What a surprise


Well educated people have some of the top jobs in the country – at least the jobs that require a good education.

My father went to a grammar school. If I wanted my daughter to have an education of similar quality I would have to pay a fortune to buy a house in the catchment areas of the few remaining grammar schools in the country, or pay for a private education – the cost of which has rocketed beyond the means of those who could previously afford it.
