Jonn @FT: On the ludicrous inflation of private school fees

Standard

Last week I made my debut on the comment pages of the Financial Times, writing about the growing disconnect between private school fees’ and British parents ability to pay them:

If you wanted a single sentence to sum up why Britain’s world-renowned private schools deserve just a little bit of the sneering they attract, you could do worse than this gem. “Fees rose by 3.9 per cent last year,” the Independent Schools Council’s last survey breezily announced, “the lowest rise for almost 20 years.” Only 3.9 per cent? Well done. Have a gold star.

The rest is behind a paywall, but those who are able can read the rest here.

Marvel at how I avoided making any pun about being in the pink.

Oh, bugger.
