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.

    Sadly this ‘catchment’ area thing is an issue in Australia as well. Especially since we have an elitist Government in power that seems to find the concept of answering to the voters as a mere annoyance.
