    I live inner city on the west, we don't have any private schools here, that would have been a quick train ride or 10min drive (minus traffic)
    Oh and we do have catholic schools but not at a good enough standard, I used to travel to the other side of the city for highschool.

    The reason for a lack of secular private schools is money. Not running costs, but capital startup costs. Government and religious schools pay no rent. So who else would fund a new school? Maybe property developers in a new estate, who can pay because it will increase the land value?

    The federal and state governments have given vast amounts of money to religious and private schools for expansion, but they will not fund the building of private secular schools.
    The churches can afford good lobbyists.

    Go to own all their land - they are always trying to buy up the houses surrounding the schools!

    Religions have soooooo much money they could fix all the problems in the world and still have change! The property they own alone is worth billions around the world.
