OP - you have posted three school/education related questions tonight, is this for an assignment or a course or something?
The government has to ensure a minimum education and resources so it is obliged to provide funding to all schools.
If people didn't use private schools the government would be spending even more money on the public system then it does now.
However, having said the above I do think that the funding should be staggered and based on what each school brings in with school fees, which would mean that the higher earning elite schools would receive a smaller chunk of the government funding.

Yes. You have to understand why historical it was done and understand there will always be a need. I don't agree to funding profit making institutions tho'.
I'm a teacher in a very poor area. It is my belief that all children deserve the same opportunities in education.

As pp,s have said , if the government stopped funding for private schools the fees would sky rocket and then tons of kids would be in the already underfunded state schools, we actually just attended an open day for DS future school in Sydney, it's fairly expensive and we have to cut a lot of costs ( and I'll work full time) to afford it, we are definitely not rich but will work hard to send our kids to these schools , I think the biggest problem
Is the government needs to work on extra funding and facilities for state schools not take them from private schools
Government funding for private schools saves the government money in the bigger picture.
Should private schools exist? No, there should be a wide variety of public education options so parents don't have to go outside the box. It'd cost a lot more than education currently costs the country though.
