The Value of a Private Education.

One more good reason why your children should all be at private schools:

There is one thing that worries me, though. I've just been forced to take both my children out of private school because I can no longer afford it. And though I understand that in Tony Blair's brave new Britain, the state education they are about to get will vastly increase their chances of securing a place at Oxford or Cambridge, becoming an MP or a High Court judge or whatever, I'm not sure that these are what I really want for them. I want my daughter to be as rich as Dido; I'd like my son to stand a fair chance of pulling someone in the league of Gwyneth Paltrow; I want my children to have the ears of presidents, prime ministers and popes, like Bono does. And, for this, a public school education may be their only hope.

So you need a private education to become (respectively) a flat and whiny, whiny and pretentious or pretentious and pompous singer?

For the sake of our ears, please the kids to public school!
