I went public all the way to university. My children's future is still unwritten, so is irrelevant to this discussion.
I lived in share houses on 2min noodles etc and worked part time to get myself through university. I paid my hecs when I was earning enough.
Are my comments anymore valid because I went to a very large (and with a very poor reputation) public school?
My point is, regardless of the school, my parents placed value on education and that was instilled for me to study etc. The school didn't matter
What matters is that we all have access to a school. And parents have access to parenting skills
