Right, so you are unable to answer the question. “equality of opportunity” is very laudable, I agree with you. But you are unable to tell me how destroying the school system in the way that you want to would make things better.
The inevitable consequence will be a ‘free’ system with a lot more schools in it, costing the taxpayer more, and a smaller amount of private schools, which will cherry pick the best teachers and reinforce privilege for those who can afford it.
I genuinely think the current system is better all round, doing my best to look at it objectively. I cannot see the merit in your position.
This is just snide. We make sacrifices but there are limits to what most people who send their kids to private schools can afford - that’s the whole point.
